8080KN Battery Powered Temperature Indicator
IME Model 8080KN Battery Operated Digital Temperature Indicator accepts an input from a standard Type J or K Thermocouple or RTD and provides local indication of temperature in °F or °C. Designed specifically to replace Bimetallic Sensors, 8080KN becomes a universal instrument since only one instrument will indicate the entire useful range of the thermocouple (-100 to 900°C). This eliminates having several bimetallic sensors where the dial range has to be predetermined. Operating costs are also drastically reduced since the temperature sensor can be easily replaced in case of failure, unlike a bimetallic sensor where the entire instrument has to be discarded. Furthermore thermocouples are a lot more reliable, accurate and stable when compared to the archaic bimetallic sensor.
