QUESTemp 46


TSI Quest QUESTemp 46

The QUESTemp° 44/46/48N utilizes a waterless wet bulb sensor designed for working environments where daily instrument upkeep is difficult. A high-quality humidity sensor and proprietary algorithm perform the calculation of the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) values, eliminating the hassle of daily wet bulb maintenance.
  • Utilizes WBGT sensing technology; the standard for heat stress management
  • Waterless wet bulb sensing technology eliminates daily maintenance
  • Convenient stay time parameters per multiple standards help determine work-rest ratios
  • IP 54 ingress rating helps protect unit from exposure to dirt, dust, oil and water
  • Designed to withstand the rigors of everyday use in demanding environments
MeasurementsGlobe, dry bulb temperature, wet bulb temperature, % relative humidity, WGBTin, WGBTout, WGBT weighted average (if 3 sensor sets), and Heat Index / Humidex.
Temperatures given in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
Index (QUESTemp 46 only)ACGIH TLV, U.S. Navy PHEL Charts, Flag Conditions for U.S. Navy/Marine Corp. Ashore, and EPRI
Data LoggingRecords and prints all measurements at user selected interval of 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 30, or 60 minutes. 128K bytes of data memory.
LanguagesEnglish, French, Spanish, Italian, German.
HousingDesigned water resistant to a light rain or mist. If rain is frequent, best practice would be to remote the sensor bar and keep the instrument sheltered.
