aemc CA879 Infrared Thermometer, -58 to 1022 Degrees F Range The Infrared Thermometer is a non-contact temperature measuring instrument. It incorporates a laser target feature for precision measurement To measure the temperature of an object, simply point the gun at the surface of the object and the temperature will appear on the digital display. The thermometer has an automatic shut-off feature. Shut-off will occur approximately 10 seconds after the trigger is released. All objects whose temperature is higher than absolute zero (-273.15 K) emit infrared energy. This energy radiates in all directions at the speed of light. When the gun is pointed at an object, the probe’s lens senses this energy and focuses it onto an infrared detector comprised of a thermocouple stack. The detector produces a voltage signal proportional to the amount of energy received, and therefore proportional to the object’s temperature. Applications: Electrical troubleshooting, Food safety and processing, Automotive repair and maintenance, Marine maintenance and repairs, Test faulty motor winding insulation, Test overheated high voltage transformers, Test terminals on circuit breaker panels, Perform HVAC energy audits. Measuring range: -58 degree to 1022 degree F (-50 degree to 550 degree C). Resolution: 0.1 degree F from -58 degree to 200 degree F, 1 degree F beyond this range, 0.1 degree C from -50 degree to 200 degree C, 1 degree C beyond this range. Accuracy: +/-1.5 percent of the reading +/-4 degree F of -4 to +1022 degree F/+/-9 degree F of -58 to -4 degree F, +/-1.5 percent of the reading +/-2 degree C of -20 to +550 degree C/ +/-5 degree C of -50 to -20 degree C. Power Source: One 9V Alkaline battery included (6LR61 or 6LF22). Operating: Temperature humidity 32 degree to 122 degree F (0 degree to 50 degree C) 10 to 90 percent RH. Storage: Temperature humidity: -4 degree to 140 degree F (-20 degree to 60 degree C) without battery< 80 percent RH. Measures 3-59/64" width by 9-3/64" height by 2-3/16" depth. ₱ 12,641.00
On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat: With Subsidiary Researches on the Variation of the Mercurial From the Air Thermometer, and on the Variation of the Specific Heat of Water (Classic Reprint) Excerpt from On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat: With Subsidiary Researches on the Variation of the Mercurial From the Air Thermometer, and on the Variation of the Specific Heat of Water But Joule experimented on water of one temperature only, and did not reduce his results' to the air thermometer; so that we are still left in doubt, even to the extent of one per cent, as to the value of the equivalent on the air thermometer. The reduction of the mercurial to the air thermometer, and thence to the absolute scale, has generally been neglected between 0° and 100° by most physicists, though it is known that they differ several tenths of a degree at the 45° point. In calorimetric researches this may produce an error of over one, and even approaching two per cent, especially when a Geissler thermometer is used, which is the worst in this respect of any that I have experimented on; and small intervals on the mercurial thermometers differ among themselves more than one per cent from the difference of the glass used in them. Again, as water is necessarily the liquid used in calorimeters, its variation of Specific heat with the temperature is a very important factor in the determination of the equivalent. Strange as it may appear, we may be said to know almost nothing about the variation of the specific heat of water with the temperature between 0° and 100° C.

A Guide to Choosing the Right Thermometers for You!

Each thermometer works differently depending on who will be using the thermometer, as well as what it will be used for, the thermometer you choose might surprise you.

Types of Thermometers in the Philippines

There are five types of thermometers and each one of them looks and operates vastly different from each other.

Thermometer Types

How It’s Used

Mercury Glass Thermometer

Quite old fashioned, mercury glass thermometers are made using mercury. One of the biggest reasons that it isn’t as widely used these days is due to the risk it possesses, in that it can be broken and the mercury inside is toxic.

Another reason it is no longer in use is because it is that the measurements are quite hard to read.

One of the earliest thermometers, it measures temperatures through the rectum, mouth, or in the armpit/underarm.

Electronic Digital Thermometer

Obviously preferred over mercury glass thermometers, electronic digital thermometers are much safer and have quite a few advantages over glass thermometers.

The readings obtained using an electronic digital thermometer appear much faster, and as it is digital, is much easier to read.

Infrared Thermometer

This is the faster type of thermometer, taking only seconds to obtain and provide a reading.

It measures the heat generated by surfaces.

It is also one of the more expensive types of thermometer out there.

Infrared Ear Thermometer

Similar to an infrared thermometer, an infrared ear thermometer is used inside the eardrum and measures the heat generated in there and in the surrounding tissue.

The readings obtained are accurate, fast, and are extremely easy to read on the thermometers digital display.

Infrared Forehead Thermometer

Also, similar to the infrared thermometer, instead of measuring temperature from the eardrum, the infrared forehead thermometer takes temperatures using the forehead.

Measuring the infrared energy emitted from the forehead, this thermometer is quite gentle and is one of the best thermometers for infants.

The heat generated from the forehead is converted into a temperature value and its accuracy depends on its operation and manufacturer. But its accuracy is clinically proven.

The Different Ways to Take Your Temperature

There are plenty of different ways that temperature can be taken using thermometers, but the most common methods are through the ears, mouth, forehead, rectum, and underarm. Depending on the method the temperature is taken, its accuracy may be inconsistent, and it also depends on whether the method of executed properly.

Ear – Many prefer this method, but its results are often inconsistent. When measuring through the ear, you should measure the same ear each time.

Mouth – Holding the tip of the thermometer in your mouth, you will need to hold the thermometer steadily. Ensure that you haven’t had a cold drink before taking your temperature.

Forehead – There are different types of forehead thermometers, so make sure to read the manual for the proper use. One kind needs to be pressed against the forehead for the temperature to be taken, and the other lets you hover the thermometer over the forehead.

Rectum – Usually used for babies and infants, the thermometer, usually a mercury glass one, will be inserted into the child’s rectum and the temperature is taken from there.

Underarm – Merely tuck the thermometer under the arm without clothes in the way and press your arm so that the thermometer is held in place.
