To speed up your work, save up to 12 of your most frequently used temperatures in the user-adjustable presets. The 4-1/2 digit LCD provides 0.1° resolution up to 1999.9 with 1° above that. A simple mode button adjusts the contrast of the LCD and other user settings. The auto-off function preserves battery life and can be disabled when you need longer term simulation for testing controllers, recorders, loggers or thermometer stability. Accurate internal cold-junction compensation is included as a default and you can select external compensation if ever needed.
When you shop for a thermocouple calibrator, make sure the accuracy specification of your calibrator is at least 2 to 4 times better than the instrument you're checking. Many handheld calibrators are less accurate than the typical handheld thermometers you might want to calibrate. The Microcal 2 should meet virtually all thermocouple calibration requirements.
The Microcal 2 is available in thermocouple types K, T and J. Each unit comes with the appropriate thermocouple cable fitted with mini-plugs. A certificate of calibration is provided by a fully accredited and traceable cal lab including actual test data at five temperatures. Check around. You won't beat this value!
