The thermal environment in the workstations must correspond to conditions, adequate to the capacities of the own body. The external thermal environment is determined by the temperature, humidity and speed of the air, as well as by radiant heat. With the HT200 meter you can carry out measurements of the thermal environment.
Several international reference bodies recommend their quantification by calculating the WBGT (Wet Bulb Globe Temperature) index, which measures the globe temperature, the natural wet temperature and the mean radiant temperature, expressing the value in ° C (degrees Celsius).
The HT200 meter allows precise measurements of the following:
The thermal stress index measures the sensation of heat when the humidity is combined with the temperature, the movement of the air and the radiant heat. The HT200 stores up to 50 readings. Includes 9V battery, protective case and power supply.
Other technical data
These variables arise in the form of energy such as temperature and humidity, luminosity and noise. However the human being has limits with respect to the tolerance of these parameters, being able to arise situations of danger from certain levels. It is in this context that we intend to explore the environmental variables that contribute to thermal stress due to heat in workplaces. Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) is used to evaluate the work places affected by thermal radiation, as well as to determine the maximum allowed exposure time.
