Model TL3 - Large Display Portable Stem Thermometer
The TL3 thermometer is an ergonomically advanced version of ThermoProbe’s trusted TL1-A. The TL3 incorporates a larger display and an easier to hold shape with the same specifications for high accuracy and long term stability established by the TL1-A. The TL3 is intended to be used anywhere a precision glass stem thermometer or other type thermometer is used. The TL3 is well suited as a calibration reference in the laboratory or field.
The versatile software functions allow easy selection of Celsius or Fahrenheit units and display resolution. Encoded calibration is unaffected by temperature, vibration, or battery removal. Low battery display, and failure mode indications protect the user from false data. The intuitive display indicators allow the user to establish accurate temperature readings. Minimum, maximum and average temperatures are automatically stored to memory for later reference.
The TL3 is constructed with a molded glass-filled nylon case and stainless steel temperature probe. Different from many electronic thermometers, the “Cordless” TL3 has no wires to get in the way or break. The silicone button interface makes for intuitive operation. Standard probe lengths are 8 and 12 inches with additional lengths available upon request. The TL3 comes equipped with an easily replaceable coin cell battery, providing up to 100 hours of operation.
