Handy temp monitor with two probes, easy to see and accurate – Phil Roth
SUMMARY: Handy temp monitor with two probes, easy to see and accurate.
The good guys at JetArt were kind enough to send us their DT2000 Thermo Eye to check out. This is a handy, battery operated dual temperature display that has dozens of uses beyond temperature monitoring of all those overclocked devices in your PC.
Everything you need to start temperature recording is included in the package:
- Dimensions: 78 x 42 x 13 mm
- Weight: 30 grams
- Temperature Range: 0-120ºC / 32-248ºF
- Monitor: Backlit LCD
- Dual probe length: 40″
- Battery: CR2032
The DT2000 requires no external power and uses a standard CR2032 coin cell battery that should provide months of reliable operation. Installation couldn’t be easier, just attach the monitor in a convenient place with the included Velcro, plug in the dual temperature probes, attach the probe tips to whatever you want to monitor and you’re good to go.
The dual probe wires are long enough at 40″ to route cleanly along the inside of the computer chassis to reach just about any point inside your case. The two probes join together in a four pin plug that connects to the bottom of the unit:
Unlike some displays that have a single readout and require you to select a temperature “channel” for viewing, the DT2000 displays both channels simultaneously in high contrast text that is easily viewable from up to 36″ away. Celsius or Farenheit display selection is determined by a switch located on the back of the unit.
Included with the package are handy Velcro pads which are cut to the same oval shape of the monitor, unlike the standard unattractive tape commonly used that doesn’t usually hold straight and secure:
The monitor is illuminated by a green LED at a push of a button and remains on for 30 seconds:
Accuracy of the DT2000 is within 1ºC up until approximately 100ºC where the device becomes slightly non-linear:
I attached the DT2000 on my case – easy to see:
Jetart’s DT2000 does the job, is easy to see and fairly accurate – a nice package.
