Heat stroke can be a serious health risk to workers wearing heavy protective clothing. To combat this risk, Casella USA offers the Microtherm heat stress monitor. This simple-to-use, handheld device displays in real-time the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature index, the internationally recognized method of calculating heat stress. The monitor uses three sensors, which are manufactured to BS 1904 and DIN 43760 accuracy standards and which can be mounted directly on the instrument itself or remotely positioned by cable at a distance of up to 30 ft, indoors or outdoors. Workers in power stations, steel works, bakeries, glass-manufacturing, etc., would benefit from the capabilities of this device. Included is a Microsoft Windows 32-bit PC software package for data collection and analysis.
