The QUESTemp 46 Heat Stress Monitor offers high quality heat stress monitoring without the hassle of wet-bulb maintenance. The QT-46 model measures/calculates the dry bulb, wet bulb, and globe temperatures along with WBGT indoors, WBGT outdoors, relative humidity, and Heat index/Humidex. 
A real-time clock provides accurate reporting with time stamping. On-board datalogging along with Detection Management Software (DMS) allows for advanced analysis of data with charting, graphing, and reporting options. 
In addition, the QUESTemp 46 includes the ability to measure stay times in order to manage work/rest regimens. Guidance is based on the screening criteria for heat stress as defined in the ACGIH TLV Handbook, U.S. Navy PHEL Charts, U.S. Marine Flag System and EPRI Action Limits. The QUESTemp 46 also features an optional detachable air probe.
