‘ A measure of cold or heat, often measurable with a thermometer.’
Temperature indicates the direction in which heat energy will spontaneously flow i.e., from a hotter body (one at a higher temperature) to a colder body (one at a lower temperature).
- BODY TEMPERATURE MONITORING
The average normal oral temperature is 98.6°F (37°C). A rectal temperature is 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature. An ear temperature is 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature. An armpit temperature is most often 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature.
- ENVIRONMENTAL TEMPERATURE MONITORING
An environmental monitoring system is the process that monitors the quality of the environment. The RMS software allows for a real time monitoring of any parameter required. Rotronic offers solutions for relative humidity, temperature, dew and frost point, differential pressure, pressure, flow, lux and CO2.
- Air Monitoring
- Water Monitoring
- Waste Monitoring
- Remote Sensing
// CATEGORIES //
Environmental monitoring involves five main categories: air, soil, water, waste, and noise.
// TYPES //
Thermocouples, RTDs, thermistors, and semiconductor based ICs are the main types of temperature sensors used today.
// BENEFITS //
‘Environmental Monitoring Benefits’
- Validation and verification of cleaning and sanitation programs.
- Provides data of the overall effectiveness of your sanitary program, personnel practices, and operations procedures.
- Provides data about indicator organisms, spoilage organisms, and pathogens to prevent outbreaks.
Humidity is defined as the amount of wetness or water vapor in the air. When it is just about to rain and there’s a lot of water vapor in the air, this is an example of a time when the humidity level is high. The amount of water vapour in the air.
// TEMPERATURE LEVEL //
Humid heat means the air is hot and moist, typically with a temperature at or above 90 °F and a relative humidity of 30% or more.
// MOISTURE //
High humidity can cause problems in your home if relative humidity regularly exceeds 60%. When the air contains water vapor above that level, mold and mildew start to grow, while excess moisture can cause rot, damaging your belongings.
The temperature and humidity monitoring system controls and regulates the temperature of a particular environment. A temperature monitoring system has become an essential part of healthcare, hospitals, clinics, food business, and other industries in recent years.
A centralized monitoring system lets you monitor your entire network in real time from a single machine. If an error occurs, you’ll be notified immediately and can fix the problem at once. This saves you time and provides for peace of mind.
// MEASUREMENTS //
Both temperature and relative humidity can be measured using a digital thermometer. amount of water in the air (in grams/m3) at a given temperature to the maximum possible water content at that temperature, and it is expressed as a percentage.
The three most common temperature sensors in a temperature monitoring system are:
- RTD sensors
Thermocouples are used in pretty much every low to mid budget temperature monitoring system. They are the least expensive sensors you’ll find in a temperature monitoring system.
