Glenview IL – October 07, 2013 Tinker & Rasor a leading design, developer and
manufacturer of electronic inspection equipment and reference electrodes was looking
for a novel way to alert users to the necessity of correcting voltage readings for ambient
temperature and supply the inspector with support documentation necessary to help with
a temperature correction. No easy task since the reference material is several pages
Tinker and Rasor came to LCR Hallcrest with the idea of capitalizing on the ubiquitous
smartphone. They were looking for a low cost thermometer that would provide
continuous temperature of a half- cell (used in electrochemistry) and a QR code so in the
event of a temperature excursion the user could access support documentation via the
smartphones QR code reader.
LCR Hallcrest created a liquid crystal
thermometer with an integrated QR
code in a size and shape that meets
user requirements. This Tinker and
Rasor temperature label will give the
user an indication of the temperature of
the reference electrode body, allowing
for a determination if temperature
correction should be of concern. Support documentation is available via the QR code on
the temperature label to help in this determination.
"This dual use custom temperature label is what we do at LCR Hallcrest comments
