The WIKA TI.80 solar-powered digital thermometer is used for monitoring temperature in biotechnical and chemical processing, composting, aviation, and power generation applications. It measures temperature from -50 to +300 degrees F or -50 to +150 degrees C with an accuracy of + or - 1% the scale. The back-mounted stem is available in lengths from 2-1/2" to 24" long and has a thermistor sensor in the tip for taking measurements. The stainless steel 304 body and stem are corrosion resistant and withstand high temperatures. The thermometer provides temperature updates every 15 seconds for monitoring. It is powered by a 3V solar cell that operates on 35 lux of light.

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 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.
WIKA Instruments manufactures pressure, temperature, and level measurement instrumentation. Founded in 1946, the company has its US headquarters in Lawrenceville, GA, and meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.

Cracked face within 2 weeks of installation. product stopped working within 4 weeks of installation. save your money and time and purchase something else. I like Wika instrumentation, so this is a big disappointment.
