Now he is in every house, room, on the street, built into the technique and does not cause anybody to be surprised. But very few people know all of its varieties and features.
Description of the device
The room thermometer is designed to measure the temperature in rooms of any type. It can be used in living rooms, kindergartens and schools, office premises, warehouses and various industries.
Depending on the room in which the temperature is measured, the graduated scale may have different readings:
All of them have a division price of 1 ° C, and depending on the temperature parameters are intended for warm or non-heated rooms.
This is the most common device for use. It is the room thermometer that has the largest assortment both in temperature range and in external design.
Variety of appearance
This kind of devices perform:
- In the case of plastic, this is the most common form. The plastic can be white, black and many other colors. Thanks to which it can be selected according to the interior.
- In the wooden case. It is made of natural wood, painted with varnishes and built in a measuring scale, applying temperature markings to a wooden base.
- In a case based on cardboard. To do this, press compact cardboard with different patterns is applied. This type of thermometer is of a souvenir character and has a significant minus in use. This type of thermometer is afraid of high humidity.
- In a metal frame.
- In the glass.
- There are thermometers built into the gypsum body.
Types of thermometers
Since the creation of the first thermometer, it has been significantly transformed and modernized. And if the first room thermometer was an ordinary device for measuring temperature and consisted of a body and an alcohol scale, then its followers became more elaborate.
Since then, a more advanced room thermometer has appeared - the electronic version of its predecessor. Powered by batteries and outputting temperature to a special built-in display. In addition to temperature parameters, the room thermometer electronic can show the relative humidity of the air in the room, and also serve as a clock and even an alarm clock. It all depends on the model.
Another kind is a street-room thermometer. It is designed to measure temperature conditions both indoors and outdoors. He, like the previous representative, is electronic, with a built-in display. The screen usually shows the temperature of the air in the room and outdoors, the humidity of the air is also indoor and outdoor and time of day. Works on one or more batteries.
The device that is able to analyze and show the relative humidity of air, has another name - a thermometer with a hygrometer room. It is an alternative to the psychrometric hygrometer, which is used in various industries to determine the temperature and humidity of air in rooms and storage chambers.
General recommendations for use
After the purchase in the store it is important to determine the location where the indoor thermometer is positioned so that it correctly displays the temperature and humidity indoors.
It is important to keep it away from direct sunlight, heat sources, heating elements and moisture sources.
