Intended for quality-control inspections and laboratory use, the Digital Thermocouple Thermometer features a temperature range of from -58 to +1742 degrees Fahrenheit/-50 to +950 degrees Celsius with accuracy rated at 0.2 percent of the reading over full scale. The unit is supplied with a 4.8-inch, K-type penetration probe with a sturdy handle. A tough spring cord can be unplugged from the unit for storage. The product retains the highest and lowest temperature readings in memory for future review until the unit is cleared or shut off.
Model 224 Flow-Through pressure transducer enables the user to monitor specialty gas processes on an in-line basis in gas delivery systems, semiconductor process tools, gas cabinets, pharmaceutical and biotech processes and high-pressure liquid chromatography. Patented variable capacitance technology provides excellent zero stability and long-term reliability. According to the manufacturer, it is virtually EMI/RFI immune with a high tolerance of system torsion and welding effects and is able to withstand bake-out to 185 degrees Fahrenheit without affecting calibration. This model is available with 5 or 10 VDC or 4 to 20 mA output with 0.25 percent of full-scale or 1.0 percent of reading accuracy.
