The Thermapen 4 is fully configurable using buttons in the battery compartment. Here you can choose to lock the display position, disable auto-sleep mode, choose °C or °F scales and select 1° or 0.1° resolution.
The patented 360° self-rotating display can be used in any position, in either hand. The unit incorporates an intelligent backlit display sensing light levels, automatically turning the backlight on/off in varying light conditions. The motion-sensing sleep mode automatically turns the Thermapen Mk4 on/off when set down or picked up, maximising battery life – 3000 hours in normal use.
The casing is washable and includes ‘Biomaster’ additive that reduces bacterial growth and the ergonomic rubber seal minimises the risk of the ingress of water, dust or food.
As well as being waterproof to IP67/67, it is still ‘probably’ the fastest reading contact thermometer on the market today . The true temperature of a product can be tested in just three seconds. The Thermapen Mk4 incorporates a reduced tip, stainless steel, food penetration probe (Ø3.3 x 115 mm) that conveniently folds back through 180° into the side of the instrument when not in use.
