A new thermometer has been released by Electronic Temperature Instruments that can be read from any angle, which is said to simplify taking temperature readings.
The company’s Temptest 1 features a Patented automatic 360° display, which rotates in 90° increments enabling the user to read the temperature in any position i.e. left hand, right hand, vertical or horizontal. This feature can be ‘locked’ by the user, if required. Additionally, the thermometer features an intelligent backlit LCD display, which illuminates the display when ambient light levels are low, making the thermometer reading easier to read whatever the time of day.
The new smart thermometer incorporates a large, easy to read digital display, with a precise read-out of temperature over the range of -49.9 to 299.9 °C with a 0.1 °C/°F resolution and an accuracy of ±0.4 °C (-49.9 to 200 °C). The thermometer will power off automatically after ten minutes, maximising battery life. This feature can be disabled.
The instrument is housed in a waterproof IP67 case with an ergonomic rubber seal, both include ‘Biomaster’ additive to reduce bacterial growth. As well as being waterproof. The true temperature of a product can be measured in just three seconds.
Both low battery (icon) and open circuit indication are displayed, when applicable. The instrument is is powered by two AAA batteries with a minimum life expectancy of 5000 hours in normal use without the backlight.
They are supplied with a permanently attached, pointed stainless steel food penetration probe (Ø3.3 x 80 mm) with fast response tip which measures the true temperature in under 3 seconds, which is typically 50 percent faster than traditional thermometers.
