Subject: Thermohygrometer


From: Alister Shew <alister.shew>

We are seeking to buy 20-30 thermo-hygrometers (dial type,
non-battery) for use in display cases at our forthcoming buildings
(one new and one redeveloped). Does anyone know of anything besides
the rather expensive Arten model, but of a comparable size?

Several years ago we bought a number of units called the Fino
Digitherm--which are actually not digital despite the name--from
Restor-Art, a division of DT in Germany. These are in a square white
plastic case, with a dial about 5cm (2 inches) in diameter, and seem
to be accurate (and were far less expensive than the Arten), but
enquiries to the company indicate that this model is no longer
available. We'd also appreciate if anyone knows if some other
company is now distributing these.
