Globe thermometer (TC type K) - for radiant heat
Thermal comfort is a crucial factor in terms of a person's physical and mental capabilities – and should be ensured through regular measurements of the individual parameters directly at the workplace.
In combination with an appropriate measuring instrument, the globe thermometer (thermocouple type K) enables standard-compliant determination and checking of the radiant heat parameter. For example, if a significant temperature difference between the ambient and globe temperature is detected, the cause could be high solar radiation through the window.
The hollow sphere has a diameter of 150 mm and there is a thermocouple type K at its centre for measuring the temperature.
For the measurement of radiant heat according to ISO 7243, ISO 7726, DIN EN 27726 and DIN 33403
Thermocouple type K
Measuring range: 0 to + 120 °C
The globe thermometer is suitable for the measurement of radiant heat – e.g. in the context of standard-compliant comfort level measurement at the workplace.
1) According to standard EN 60584-2, the accuracy of Class 1 refers to -40 to +1000 °C (Type K), Class 2 to -40 to +1200 °C (Type K), Class 3 to -200 to +40 °C (Type K).
