Range of environmental T&M instruments

25 November 2020 Test & Measurement

RS Components is now stocking a wide range of its own-brand RS PRO environmental test and measurement (T&M) products. These high-precision instruments and devices are for engineers and scientists to monitor environmental conditions such as heat, moisture, sound, and light.

The RS PRO infrared thermometer is a handy instrument for taking quick, non-contact temperature measurements and features an easy-to-read display. It has two modes of operation for body and surface measurements, taking them from up to 10 cm away with an accuracy of ±0,3°C. Up to 32 measurements can be stored in the memory, and an alarm value can be set. Applications include measuring forehead temperature, room temperature, and temperatures of solids or liquids from 10°C up to 60°C.


The infrared thermometer includes a blackbody to ensure consistent and accurate temperature calibration to ±0,3°C. Thermal images are displayed on the large screen, making the results easy to read, however, the video output allows connection to a larger display if required. Data logging is via the 8 GB microSD card, which is included, and there is a variety of internal storage settings for data capture. In addition to the blackbody and memory card, the camera is supplied complete with batteries, video cable, lens cover, card reader, handrails, packing list, carrying case, QC certificate, USB speaker, tripod, power adaptor, and power cables for the camera and blackbody.


For more permanent installations, the RS PRO thermal imaging system allows users to visualise heat ources at a safe distance from

3 m to 10 m in real time using the video output connection to a display. It can be set up for continuous recording 24/7, with critical temperature conditions triggering an automatic alarm for abnormal temperatures. Typical applications include fire detection and scanning up to six people simultaneously. A blackbody is included to ensure accurate and reliable measurements to within ±0,3°C. Along with the blackbody, the camera is supplied with client software, QC certificate, power adaptor, and associated power cables.

In addition to thermal measurement and monitoring equipment, the RS PRO environmental T&M; range includes a microwave emissions detector. This instrument is typically used by facilities and maintenance engineers to monitor and detect electromagnetic leakage. The RS PRO sound level meter has a dynamic range from 35 dB to 130 dB. Measurement data can be transferred to the user’s mobile phone via Bluetooth for further analysis.

The RS PRO environmental T&M; equipment range has been through high-calibre compliance and quality testing to assure quality, durability, and consistency, and comes with the RS PRO Seal of Approval.
