Climate measurements including 'heat index' and 'apparent temperature'
The BC25 is a both effective and handy instrument for reliably determining a measure for the physical stress resulting from high temperatures in combination with high humidity levels. For a high humidity level affects the thermal regulation of the body by evaporation of sweat. This way, the subjective well-being is considerably impaired and the risk of a heat stroke is objectively increased, particularly for sportsmen as well as sick and elderly people.
With its sensitive sensor system, the BC25 therefore not only determines common climate parameters such as the air temperature, relative humidity, dew point and wet-bulb temperature, but also the 'heat index' (HI) and the 'apparent temperature' (WBGT index). Both the heat index and the so-called wet-bulb globe temperature provide information on the apparent temperature based on the measured air temperature and in particular the relative humidity and other parameters such as the heat radiation.
Due to the alarm functions of the BC25 for heat index and apparent temperature, thermal damage can be avoided from the start and the limits of stress resistance at high temperatures can be set. The large and easily readable LCD display as well as the functions for automatic switch-off, minimum and maximum value, AVG and HOLD complete the range of features of this innovative measuring device.
