The datalogging QUESTemp° 36 is the premier monitor within the QUESTemp° Series of Thermal Environment Monitors. The QUESTemp° 36 further simplifies heat stress management efforts by providing users with realtime guidance on stay times and work/rest regimens. The QUESTemp° 36 eliminates the need to carry paper charts, pocket guides and look-up tables into the field.
The QUESTemp° 34 area heat stress monitor struts its stuff with its ability to protect groups of workers with a single instrument. The dry bulb sensor measures ambient temperature. The wet bulb sensor takes into account evaporative cooling, giving an indication of the effects of humidity on an individual. And the globe sensor provides an indication of radiant heat exposure due either to direct light or hot objects in an environment. The QUESTemp° 34 environmental monitor converts all these measurements to a simple, single-number indoor and outdoor WBGT index that can used in conjunction with guidelines from ACGIH, the U.S. Navy, EPRI, ISO and other standards-setting organizations. Use the QUESTempº 34 area heat stress monitor with any of these guidelines to determine appropriate work and rest regiments or stay times for workers in situations where heat stress is a life safety issue and a liability risk. While the QUESTempº 34 will print a report without the need for special software, Quest Suite software, an optional rental item, facilitates custom reports and graphs.
The QUESTemp II is an easy-to-use personal heat stress indicator that monitors an individualâ€™s body temperature for indications of the onset of heat stress. The QUESTempÂ° II is intended to be a part of a well-managed heat stress safety program. It is an alerting device that warns the user that their personal body temperature has risen above the ""safe"" level and that action should be taken to allow the body to cool.
The QUESTempÂ° II consists of a belt or pocket worn device with a thin, flexible cable leading up to a small earmold that contains the sensor and a small speaker for an audio alert. The sensing device protrudes from the earmold and a disposable E.A.R.Â® foam earplug slides over the sensor providing a comfortable vehicle for inserting and maintaining the sensor. The speaker and earmold remain just outside of the ear to completely avoid any possible damage or injury to the ear canal.
Like the datalogging QUESTempÂ° 34 and 36 area monitors, the QUESTempÂ° II interfaces with QuestSuite Professional software for fast and convenient data storage, retrieval, analysis, reporting and charting. Using QuestSuite Professional in conjunction with QUESTempÂ° Series personal and area monitors enables powerful correlations to be developed between environmental conditions, physical activity, clothing types and real physiological impact on an individualized basis.
The QUESTEMPÂºII temperature sensor has an electronic accuracy of better than +/-0.1ÂºC over the temperature range of 32ÂºC to 40ÂºC. (Body temperature range.)
Using one 9-volt ALKALINE (type NEDA 1604A) battery, the QUESTEMPÂºII, under normal usage, should last approximately 60 hours. It will also continue to operate for a minimum of 8 hours after the LOW BATTery indicator first comes on.
A 3 volt lithium battery is used as backup power for the real-time clock and the memory.
The unit itself has an operating temperature range of 0ÂºC to 70ÂºC.
If the unit is to be stored for prolonged periods, the battery should be removed.
Operate between 0% - 95% humidity (non-condensing).
