Using advanced technology the new Thermapen 4 digital thermometer includes a number of innovative features. The patented 360° self-rotating display can be used in any position, in either hand. The unit incorporates an intelligent backlit display sensing light levels, automatically turning the backlight on/off in varying light conditions. The motion-sensing sleep mode automatically turns the Thermapen 4 on/off when set down or picked up, maximising battery life.
The casing is washable and includes 'Biomaster' additive that reduces bacterial growth and the ergonomic rubber seal minimises the risk of the ingress of water, dust or food. As well as being waterproof to IP66/67, it is still 'probably' the fastest reading contact thermometer on the market today . The true temperature of a product can be tested in just three seconds. The Thermapen 4 incorporates a reduced tip, stainless steel, penetration probe (Ø3.3 x 110 mm) that conveniently folds back through 180° into the side of the instrument when not in use.
The Thermapen 4 is powered by a single AAA battery with a life expectancy of 3000 hours in normal use, without the backlight. Both low battery (icon) and open circuit indication are displayed, when applicable. Each Thermapen 4 is supplied with a FREE traceable certificate of calibration.
