The Hanna Instruments HI935005 K-type thermocouple digital thermometer is for use in applications requiring a broad range of temperature measurements, including furnaces, kilns, freezers, and other industrial applications. It measures temperature from -50 to 1350 degrees C (-58 to 2462 degrees F), with an accuracy of + or - 0.2% of full scale. The K-type thermocouple sensor has a broader temperature measurement range than a thermistor sensor but provides lower accuracy. The LCD screen shows the current temperature and the highest or lowest temperature reading for the session. The operator can choose to display readings in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. The hold function keeps a measurement on the display so it can be recorded. A K-type thermocouple probe (not included) can be connected to the input port for taking measurements. The thermometer operates on three AA batteries (included). To conserve battery life, the user can program the thermometer to automatically turn off after either 8 or 60 minutes of non-use. The display shows current battery charge at start-up, and a low-battery indicator alerts the operator and turns off the thermometer when low battery charge might affect the accuracy of readings. A waterproof casing helps protect against damage from splashes and spills.

Digital thermocouple thermometers measure the temperature of air, liquids, or surfaces. They may measure temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or both. Thermocouple thermometers are composed of two conductors of different metals, usually alloys of the same metal, which touch at the sensor end of the thermometer. The difference in conductivity between the two metal pieces produces a voltage flow between the sensor end and the open end of each conductor, which can be used to determine the temperature. Different alloys are used for different temperature ranges. Thermocouple thermometers are used in applications that require a large temperature range and do not require a high degree of accuracy. These thermometers are used in kilns, turbine exhaust systems, and furnaces.
