Temperature Detectives

Wahl Instruments’ two newly released digital resistance temperature detectors (RTD) — the DST500 Temperature Indicator and the DSX500 Transmitter Thermometer (shown here) — feature high-precision temperature measurement technology and a 1-inch LCD display. The units are available in a variety of standard and custom-built probe configurations, including mercury-in-glass (MIG) standard tapered bulb for drop-in direct MIG replacement. The thermometers include an adjustable angle probe option for easy adjustment of the display. A quick-disconnect option allows the user to remove the probe and meter for calibration without removing the permanently installed cable. Total system accuracy is ±0.3F (±0.2C) over a one-year period. The thermometers feature a temperature range of –328F to 1,472F (–200C to 800C). (www.palmerwahl.com)
