Hand-Held Probe Measures Surface Temperature of Solids

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) (http://www.qats.com) now provides the HP1000-SP stainless steel, single-sensor hand-held probe designed for measuring air temperature or the surface temperature of solids.

Norwood, MA, August 12, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The HP 1000-SP probe features a pointed tip that allows for exact positioning of the sensor on the desired spot. This enhances measurement accuracy by eliminating any conduction heat transfer through the stem.

The HP 1000-SP is ideal for hard to reach locations in a variety of applications. According to Dr. Bahman Tavassoli, PhD Chief Technologies at Advanced Thermal Solutions. “We have applications where an automotive design engineer uses the probe to reach a hot surface on a motor for example”, said Dr. Tavassoli, “otherwise they would not be able understand the temperature characteristics of the surface and how it effects the overall thermal management design.” Dr. Tavassoli noted that any hard to reach space or surface in an enclosure or building would be good applications for the HP 1000-SP.

Besides hard to reach places, the HP 1000-SP can also act as a thermocouple as well as a temperature probe. This purpose built, dual application approach saves engineers both time and money having to purchase separate thermocouples.

The HP 1000-SP is designed to be used with ATS’s full line of Temperature and Velocity Measurement Instruments from the entry level, 4 sensor supporting, eATVS-4 to the ATVS-NxT which supports 32 simultaneous air/velocity sensors.
