Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI) is a measure of the thermal environment that influences human comfort and health. The HD32.3TC thermal comfort data logger for PMV/PPD/WBGT/turbulence measurement can be configured to measure UTCI, without hardware changes.
Shown below are some photos of
HD32.3TC in the UTCI measurement mode. Related instruments Temperature & humidity
An earlier post showed
WBGT measurement with a combined temperature and humidity probe. With this configuration, the natural wet bulb temperature is calculated.
Shown below is a configuration of the same HD32.3TC instrument with a wet bulb temperature probe. In this case, the wet bulb temperature is directly measured, in compliance to
HD32.3TC can be configured in various ways for thermal comfort, indoor air quality and microclimate analysis. Please refer to
the data sheet of HD32.3TC for more details. Related instruments Air speed & wind
Shown below is an
Delta Ohm HD403TS2 omni-directional air speed transmitter for thermal comfort applications. The measurement range is 0-5 m/s and the output type is 4-20 mA (0-10 V option is available).
The probe can be installed with a standard PG9 or PG11 cable gland.

Shown above is a 50 mm diameter globe thermometer, with Class A 4-wire PT100 sensor. The model is Delta Ohm TP876.1.I. An alternative model with 150 mm diameter (TP875.1.I) is also available. Refer to the
instrument datasheet for more information.

Shown below are two sets of
Delta Ohm HD32.3TC thermal comfort data loggers, with the following features: For PMV/PPD/WBGT/turbulence measurement (ISO 7726, 7730 and 7243) 4 quantities measured: air temperature, humidity, speed and globe temperature Portable With large touch screen With built-in Li-ion battery (chargeable via USB) With voice recording and camera function With wi-fi connection for FTP upload

The instrument can also be configured to
measure UCTI (Universal Thermal Climate Index), with the same probe set.
