Introducing the KD2 handheld thermal properties meter.
The KD2 is a handheld meter that uses a single-needle sensor to measure the thermal properties of any medium. It uses a simple yet precise heating and monitoring system to measure the slope and intercept of the sample specific temperature rise vs. time curve. From this data, thermal diffusivity and thermal resistivity are derived.

The KD2 only weighs 4 ounces and is very durable, making it ideal for carrying from site to site.
