Turn your iPhone into an accurate temperature probe
Published: 17 July 2012 - Michelle Lea
UK switch distributor PVL (Pressure Vacuum Ltd) has introduced an iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch add-on that allows the user to turn their device into a fully-functioning digital thermometer or temperature probe. The iCelsius Pro meets increasing demand for mobile integration and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) functionality.
According to PVL, the iCelsius Pro will be used in both industry and laboratories, and will replace more expensive probes that feature similar accuracy and temperature ranges. It will also be used in school science classes.
The user simply has to select the right hardware probe for their application, download the software from Apple’s App Store and begin taking measurements. The iCelsius Pro is as accurate and durable as other industrial probes and can display application temperature, create graphs, set up alerts, store and email data and export it to Excel.
The device is simple to use, even for those not familiar with the iPhone. Alerts are also simple to create and can notify the user if the temperature passes a pre-set level. The iCelsius Pro offers an accuracy of +0.2°C at 25°C and a temperature range of -30°C to +150°C. The relative humidity range is 5% to 95% non-condensing. A high temperature version of the product, up to +250°C, is also available.
