A new solar-powered digital thermometer has been added to Palmer Instruments’ line of industrial temperature measurement devices. The easy-to-read thermometer features an LCD screen and a built-in solar cell to save energy, alleviating the need for any battery replacements. This model is also mercury-free, allowing for safe installation in almost any environment, officials say. Some models connect to a remotely installed controller or recorder. These models feature an adjustable angle fitting that rotates at a full 180 degrees to provide the best viewing angle.
