Tru Pointe® IR

Tru Pointe® IR

A sensitive, accurate and low-cost infrared refrigerant leak detector.

  • Detects refrigerants with the sensitivity and accuracy of infrared but at the cost of older sensor technologies
  • Flexible probe (15 in.) with probe extensions (incl. “needle” probe) for finding leaks in tight spaces
  • Visual and audible indicators include an LED scale and a speaker (with mute option)


The Tru Pointe® IR is a handheld refrigerant leak detector that utilizes a long-life infrared sensor in a low-cost package to effectively pinpoint leaks of CFC, HFC, HCFC and HFO refrigerants. Ready for use in 30 seconds and with 8 hours of battery life in a single charge, the Tru Pointe® IR is truly a go-to tool.

The Tru Pointe® IR has a long, flexible neck and the kit includes probe extensions (including a “needle” probe) for detecting leaks in hard-to-reach areas. Selectable sensitivity settings and an LED scale shows relative leak sizes while the auto-zeroing feature enables leak detection in backgrounds where target gas is present. Includes 1 year warranty that also covers the IR sensor.
