New Outlet Powered Dual Input K-type Thermocouple Thermometer
Ideal for Kiln and Forge Applications
Most handheld K-type thermometers have an automatic shutoff function that switches them off after 10 or 15 minutes. This saves the battery, but can be annoying when you run a kiln or forge, you have to press a button every 10 minutes to keep the display on.
A lot of my potter, blacksmith and knife maker customers have therefore asked for a thermometer that would always stay on. Ideally it would be powered by an outlet, not by expensive batteries.
I finally developed this dual input thermometer that can measure K-type thermocouples over the full range, from -328°F to 2462°F. It displays only full 1 degree steps, no decimals. The electronics are based on circuits I have been using since 2013 for K-type dataloggers for my industrial customers. It will work with any K-type thermocouple, but for kiln and forge applications I recommend the model CR-2, which is made from a AWG8 sensor wire, which will hold up well in high temperatures. It is available in 8", 14" or 19" length.
The thermometer can be powered from any 110V outlet via the included 5V transformer.
This thermometer has two displays, so you can read both thermocouples at the same time, no need to press a button to switch the display. The numbers are 0.56 inch tall and easy to read across the room.
