The Thomas Traceable Solar Powered Thermometer measures temperature in freezers, refrigerators, offices, and storage rooms. The thermometer measures temperature from -20 to 70 degrees C (0 to 160 degrees F), with an accuracy of + or - 1 degree C. The 0.8" temperature sensor is attached to the base by a 10-foot cable and can be submerged. The unit is solar-powered and has a backup battery for use in dim areas. The 0.5" LCD display is visible from up to 10 ft. away and shows either ambient or probe temperature with the press of a button. The thermometer is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology standards, indicating that it is calibrated to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17025 levels. This Thomas thermometer is used to measure temperature and humidity in food service, scientific laboratories, and industrial settings.

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.
