RSS-214 Heat Stress Monitor
Overexposure to heat is high on anyone's priority list for improving workplace safety, whether the heat is found at a construction site in the middle of the summer, or in a glass and ceramics manufacturing operation. The RSS-214 monitors area temperature in any setting, indoors or out. Its patented globe temperature sensor is highly responsive, typically less than three minutes for the RSS-214 compared to 20 minutes or more with a conventional Vernon globe. A unique self-diagnosis feature at every power-up berifies proper monitor operation. The instrument provides direct read of outdoor and indoor WBGT, and calculates time weighted mean WBGT, metabolic rates and work-to-rest ratios. Temperature can be displayed in degrees celsius or Fahrenheit.
