Digital Thermometers for iPads for Food Inspection and K-12 Education
FREEHOLD, N.J., Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Aginova Inc., a sensor technology company, announced today it is launching several temperature probes for food inspection, for K-12 education and for cooking, especially grilling and BBQ. All the iCelsius probes use your iPad to measure temperature. It turns the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a digital thermometer. The app downloaded from the App Store will read the temperature, create graphs, set up alerts, store data, email graphs and export data to excel.
Temperature is typically measured using some type of thermometer, usually one containing a liquid like mercury or alcohol and in thermal contact with substance being measured and measured in Fahrenheit or Celsius. As compared to these thermometers, the iCelsius products react quickly to changes, thereby measuring temperature changes rapidly.
The iCelsius Inspection probes are designed for food inspection and are available in 4 different probe designs: iCelsius IP1, iCelsius IP2, iCelsius IP3 and iCelsius IP4. All the probes measure temperatures between 32 degrees F to 212 degrees F (0 degrees C to 100 degrees C) with an accuracy of +/-0.7 degree C and are suited for many applications. A stainless steel tip makes it possible to measure liquid temperatures. It reports the temperature via the iPad when the stainless steel probe is in thermal contact with matter.
The iCelsius BBQ can help you with perfectly cooked steaks every time by letting you know the status of the food with the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. The probe measures temperature between -22 degrees F to 482 degrees F (-30 degrees C to 250 degrees C).
Schools all over are buying iPads and the iPod touch. For K-12 education, especially for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects, the iCelsius Pro helps educators use their iPads and the iPod touch for demonstrating lessons and conducting experiments. With the low cost of iCelsius, educators can provide a sensor to every student in the class so they have a much better learning experience. For example, elementary schools can use the iCelsius to understand the concept of temperature while high school students can use the iCelsius Pro for sophisticated experiments in Chemistry and Biology.
iCelsius is simple to use – just plug the cable into the device, download the free application from the App Store, and get to work!
Over the coming months, Aginova plans to release additional sensors to become the leading provider of sensing technology for Apple devices.
