You need a dehumidistat to sense the relative humidity and turn on a fan or whatever dehumidifies you. This one is from Broan-NuTone and is rated for up to a 10A load at 120VAC and 5A at 240VAC but can be used with a low-voltage (24V or less) fan. Use the clearly marked, easy-to-use dial to set your humidity anywhere from 20 to 80 percent, with full on and off settings as well. Housing measures 4-1/2” x 2-3/4” x 1-1/2” with keyed 5/32” mounting holes. Comes with mounting hardware, Lo-V terminals and wiring instructions. Made in Canada by humid Canadians. Broan #DH100W.
We thought power corrupts, but it turns out otherwise. Power locks. You could put these in a car door, or think up something really kinetically clever. These brand new 12VDC door lock actuator assemblies draw 2.6A pushing or pulling with a 5/8" throw. Measures 6-3/8" overall, 3-3/4" from the tip to the right-angle gear motor, which extends 1-5/16" out from the 1-3/16" thick body. Top has a removable plastic ring, the shaft is covered by a rubber boot and the bottom has 7-1/2" leads with bullet connectors. Comes with an eight-hole 8-7/8" x 9/16" steel mounting bracket, a 8-3/4" rod and assorted screws and mounting hardware.
Measure temperatures without a touch with this digital infrared laser thermometer. Pistol style, 6" long with a 3" nose and 1.5" back-lit LCD readout. Point the guide laser where needed and measure from -58 to 716 F, and -50 to 380 C. Accurate to +/- 2 degrees C. Handy for science projects, HVAC work and making sure your glass of wine is the perfect temperature. You add a pair of "AAA" batteries.
Our pocket-sized multimeter measures a tiny 3-5/8" x 1-3/4" x 1" thick, with a 3-1/2 digit display on a 1-1/4" x 9/16" LCD screen. Will measure up to 500VAC, 100VDC, current from 200uA up to 10A, resistance up to 2000K ohms, and will also test diodes and transistors. Comes with (2) 24" test leads and a battery to power it. Teeny price to match its size. Great for science fair projects.
Perfect for hands-on hobbyists. Foot-pedal speed controls free up your paws to do the real work. This one's for 120VAC devices, and ideal for machines using approx 200W or less. Measures 5" x 3" x 2-1/4" tall, with a 6-foot cord that plugs into the wall and a grounded female plug for your sewing machine, rotary tool, scroll saw, or, if you really make a lot of banana Daiquiris, blender.
Amps and volts, go together like pretzels and mustard, at least in Philadelphia. Where were we? Yes, you pick from our 0-10VDC in 0.2 volt increments voltmeter or the zero-adjust ammeter (Galvanometer) that reads bipolarity up to 500mA in 20mA increments. Both are in black plastic housings, 4" x 5-1/2" x 3-3/4" with a slanted face and red & black banana jack terminals.
3-1/2 digit LCD electrical multimeter with a max reading of 1999. Measures (5) ranges of DC, (2) ranges of AC voltage both to 500 V, (5) ranges of resistance to 200K ohms, DC current to 10 Amp., diode test, transistor and battery test. A pocket sized 2-7/8" x 5-3/4" x 1-1/2", it comes complete with test leads and 9 volt battery. The best value for this size we have seen.
as they go past, with a classic chrome palm counter. 1-3/4" dia x 1-3/16" thick, our mechanical 4-digit counter has a thumb plunger and ring to fit around a finger so you don't drop it, you klutz. The numbers are 3/16" tall, and there's a rotary reset for when you have to start over.
And save a bundle. The "Kill-A-Watt" plugs into a wall outlet and accepts the power line for any devices or appliances that draw up to 1875 watts. Identifies energy eaters, tracks efficiency and costs over time, and checks on your electricity provider by monitoring voltage, current (amps), watts, kilowatt hours, frequency (Hz), volt amps, power factor, and elapsed time. Measures 5-1/8" x 2-3/8" x 1-7/16" with a 1-3/4" x 11/16" LCD screen. You may never use a waffle iron again.
