Jewell Instruments brand Triplett Test Equipment has launched the HS10 Heat Stress Wet Bulb Globe Temperature Meter for monitoring heat index levels at outdoor athletic training and events, construction, iron and steel foundries, brick firing plants, glass facilities, boiler rooms, and mining sites.
The HS10 simultaneously displays air temperature, humidity, and wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT) or heat index, with a display that updates every 20 seconds. Featuring a programmable audible and visual WBGT and heat index alarms, the HS10 offers an adjustable audible alarm volume and four indicators to display heat stress alert levels (caution, extreme caution, danger, extreme danger). An in/out function switch measures WBGT with or without the effects of direct sunlight. The meter is °F/°C switchable.
Weighing only 3.2 ounces (90 grams) and occupying a casing measuring only 2.8 x 2.4 x 0.9 inches (70 x 60 x 22 millimeters). the new solution comes with a wall mount for permanent installation time. Additionally, it is tripod mountable for hands-free use when taking measurements over an extended amount of time.
The HS10 temperature meter is supplied with AAA batteries and an arm strap, and is covered by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
