The Taylor 9940 digital panel mount thermometer is a digital thermometer used to monitor air or liquid temperatures in laboratories, factories, and other temperature-sensitive environments. The thermometer measures temperature from -40 to 150 degrees C (-40 to 300 degrees F), with an accuracy of + or -1.8 degrees F from 14 to 212 degrees F and +or - 3.6 degrees F outside of this range. The probe has a 10 ft. lead cable and is waterproof for immersion in liquids. The thermometer can be flush mounted or panel mounted for permanent placement. The unit has a 10-second sampling rate for quick measurements. The Taylor 9940 is used by scientists, engineers, and food service workers to monitor air and liquid temperatures.

Digital thermometers are instruments used to measure the temperature of air, liquids, or surfaces electronically. They may measure temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or both. Most digital thermometers use thermistors, which are small electronic resistors. Thermistors are made out of metals that conduct electricity within a certain range and become more conductive the warmer they get. A microcontroller inside the thermometer measures this electrical conductivity and converts it to a temperature, which is displayed on an LCD. Digital thermometers are used in a wide range of applications, including in laboratory settings, food service and storage, and in doctors' offices and hospitals.
