The Hanna Instruments HI98511 Checktemp 1C Pocket Thermometer is used for monitoring temperature in liquids, gases, and semisolids. The thermometer measures temperature from -50 to 150 degrees C, with an accuracy of + or -0.3 degrees C from -20 to 90 F and + or - 0.5 degrees C outside this range. The 160mm/6.3" stainless steel probe with penetration tip is connected to the thermometer by a 1m/3.3 ft. cable and is resistant to most laboratory chemicals. The thermometer has a Cal Check calibration function that performs a calibration check at the push of a button for increased accuracy of measurements and is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology standards, indicating that it is calibrated to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17025 levels. The HI98511 is used to measure temperature in restaurants, food storage facilities, and food preparation areas.

Digital thermometers are instruments used to measure the temperature of air, liquids, or surfaces electronically. They may measure temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or both. Most digital thermometers use thermistors, which are small electronic resistors. Thermistors are made out of metals that conduct electricity within a certain range and become more conductive the warmer they get. A microcontroller inside the thermometer measures this electrical conductivity and converts it to a temperature, which is displayed on an LCD. Digital thermometers are used in a wide range of applications, including in laboratory settings, food service and storage, and in doctors' offices and hospitals."p"Hanna Instruments manufactures analytical instrumentation and supplies, including pH meters, electrodes, chemical reagents, and buffer solutions.
