A combined instrument
The mechatronic rigid stem Thermo-meter combines the well-known TEMPRESS rigid stem thermometer and an electronic temperature sensor (thermocouple type K), into one useful tool.
Due to its construction, with the electronic sensor lead running through the thermometer stem into the bulb, both the sensor and the thermometer can be exchanged independently.
The TEMPRESS mechatronic rigid stem thermometer – for greater precision
TEMPRESS mechatronic rigid stem thermometer reduces temperature deviations significantly by combining a mechanic thermometer with an electronic temperature sensor.
When the two instruments are used independently, deviations of up 15% (as much as 60°C at 400°C) have been recorded because the measurement is taken at two separate points.
By combining the two instruments and measuring at a single point, the mechatronic rigid stem thermometer reduces maximum deviation of the two readouts to a maximum of 12,1°C (1,6% at 600°C = 9,6°C + 0,0075% at 600°C = 4,5°C), corresponding to the tolerance of both measuring systems.
