Extech Instruments announced the launch of the RH200W multi-channel wireless hygro-thermometer. The new meter tracks and displays temperature and humidity readings with up to eight remote sensors for extensive coverage of a facility.
Facilities maintenance and HVACR technicians use the new multi-channel hygro-thermometer to investigate temperature and humidity complaints around an office, factory, or other commercial space. With real-time readings for up to eight locations, the RH200W can be used to effectively monitor and identify abnormal climate-control conditions.
By monitoring multiple points at a site, IAQ and occupational hygiene managers can use the RH200W to identify issues such as poor ventilation, too-hot/-cold conditions, and too-high/-low humidity levels that impact workplace productivity and potentially increase illness-related absenteeism.
The base station connects wirelessly with remote sensors that can be placed up to almost 100 ft away indoors or outdoors. The display cycles temperature and humidity readings from each sensor in use with 1.3-in digits that can be read across a room. In addition to numerical readings, trend arrow icons indicate whether levels are rising, falling, or stable. Comfort-level icons show if air quality is too dry, too humid, or optimal. Minimum and maximum readings help identify the range of readings. A snowflake icon appears when temperatures fall below 37.4°F. Plus, an automatic night-light illuminates the display for viewing at night or in dark conditions.
Backed by Extech’s one-year warranty, the RH200W includes one base station and one remote sensor/transmitter with 6 AA batteries.
