HANNA Instruments Temperature Division has released the HI9040 handheld thermometer. It uses a thermistor sensor to deliver fast response and high accuracy.
The meter is housed in an ABS casing. The keypad has membrane buttons and can be wiped clean. The dual-level LCD displays current temperature along with the highest and lowest temperature measured in the cycle. A hold button freezes the reading. During startup the meter performs a self-check and displays the current battery level.
It has a temperature range of -50ºC to 150ºC and an accuracy of ±0.4ºC. It has a number of interchangeable probes, including colour-coded probes. It can be fitted with an optional shockproof protective rubber boot.
The battery level indicator and low battery warning alerts the user when the battery needs to be changed. The meter is supplied with the HI765BL temperature probe, battery and instructions.
