These type of instrument has a digital display to read the measured value and it is possible to select different probe based on application.
It is possible to record temperature values ( depend of thermometer model ) and download data on the PC.
Every application has the right thermometer and the right temperature probe selected in terms of : accuracy , response speed, range of temperature and type of probe, linked to every application.
How to find the right Thermometer :
Thermometer PT 100 : suitable for precision measurements
For temperature control in laboratory, in transport field, Pharmaceutical Industry, Food industry and in every manufacturing sector.
Thermocouple Thermometer : for high temperature and fast measurement
Thermocouple probes are less accurate that PT 100, but achieve higher temperatures up to 1100°C.
Infrared thermometer : for real time measurement of surface temperatures, without contact.Infrared thermometer are useful to check immediate temperature value on solid and matt surfaces, not for reflective ones.
Thermistor thermometer : for a fast answer in a short range of temperature.
