The Cooper-Atkins DPS300-01-8 pen-style dual-range digital thermometer with a swiveling head is used for monitoring temperature in food service applications. It measures temperature from -40 to +302 degrees F (-40 to +150 degrees C), with an accuracy of + or – 2 degrees F from 32 to 212 degrees F and + or – 4 degrees F outside this range. Its stainless-steel stem-style probe is 5″ long and has a reduced penetration tip for taking measurements while immersed in liquid or air. The thermometer’s head swivels 90 degrees in either direction for visibility when reading temperatures at any angle. The ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic housing material has an anti-microbial additive to help deter bacterial growth. The unit operates on a single 1.5V battery, and turns off automatically after 10 minutes of non-use to conserve battery life. The European Conformity (CE) marking indicates compliance with applicable European Union (EU) directives, and it is compliant with Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) standards. It comes with a protective sheath with pocket clip, a battery, and instructions.

H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
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.
Cooper-Atkins manufactures time, temperature, and humidity instruments for industrial, HVAC/R, health care, and food safety applications. The company, founded in 1884, is headquartered in Middlefield, CT.
