Fluke Calibration Launches Stik Thermometers for Volatile Environments

Fluke Calibration has launched the 1551A Ex and 1552A Ex Stik Thermometers. The solutions offer an accurate digital alternative to mercury- based devices. These temperature sensors comply with ATEX and IECEx regulations. This makes it possible to use them in volatile environments both indoors and outdoors.

They can be used to measure temperatures within food, pharmaceutical or petroleum industries. They offer reliable results on repeated usage and are robust and safe. Since, glass thermometers that have mercury are likely to break in volatile temperatures, there is a possibility that the mercury can put human lives in danger. These devices are therefore ideal alternatives for volatile industrial conditions.

The 1551A Ex operates at  temperatures spanning  -50 to 160°C while the 1552A Ex works in temperatures ranging from -80 to 300°C, and both are precise up to ± 0.05°C. The probe is made of stainless steel. This feature, along with the digital display, makes up the system that is easy to use. A stability/trend indicator helps users to understand when the temperature is stable enough to be recorded. The auto-off function can be pre -set. This feature also lengthens the life of the battery. An indicator warns of the impending battery failure. All data can be stored in an internal memory chip.
