Anton Paar has a wealth of experience in temperature measurement, having been active in this field since the 1960s. Continuous improvements throughout the years have lead to the development of the highly precise MKT 50 millikelvin thermometer. This 'lightweight' portable thermometer stands out for its high measuring accuracy of 0.001°C (1mK). It can be operated from the mains or from a battery and has Ethernet and RS-232 interfaces for remote control. MKT 50 has a measuring range of -260°C to +960°C (13.15K to 1233.15K) and is traceable to national standards. It is therefore ideal for use as a reference thermometer for the most accurate temperature measurements, comparison calibrations and fixed-point calibrations for industry, laboratories and research.
MKT 50 is in use around the world at well-known official calibration institutes such as DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle, formerly DKD, Germany), PTB Physikalisch-technische Bundesanstalt (Germany), ÖKD Österreichischer Kalibrierdienst (Austria), UKAS United Kingdom Accreditation Service and NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA). MKT 50 is a robust and versatile digital thermometer. Its excellent accuracy and long-term stability have been confirmed in evaluations by the CMI Czech Metrological Institute, SMU Slovak Institute of Metrology and PTB.
