What is a digital thermometer?
A digital thermometer is a temperature measuring device.
Digital thermometers are used in industry and in the home, in applications including food preparation, manufacturing, medical and scientific testing and procedures.
Whilst the liquid thermometer is the most commonly associated image of a temperature meter, digital versions are becoming more popular. This is because of their accuracy, safety and ease of use.
Digital thermometers are powered by batteries and do not require mains charging. However not all batteries can be changed, some digital thermometers do not have that capability.
A numerical reading is given on a digital thermometer, usually to one decimal place, making them more precise than liquid thermometers.
