    Digital Sling Psychrometer. $150 +/- in Grainger. A little cheaper at Johnstones. Amprobe and Extech have some nice ones that aren't too expensive and still give you the info you need.

    Some examples:

    Testo 605-H2 - Wet/dry bulb and humidity and it is not velocity dependent.

    Fieldpiece makes an inexpensive k-type thermocouple with a sock on it. They seem fairly accurate.

    I currently have been using the K type thermocouple however I am not certain of its accuracy and like the idea of trying something better. The Testo 605/H2 looks ok and I am going to check out the Fluke 971 pictured as I do like Fluke meters usually. I have never used Testo tools but have beeen seeing them alot more lately are they good equipment for the most part? Most of my meters are Fluke and Fieldpiece

    I use Fieldpiece and Fluke too, however Testo has been in my bag for a couple of years now and I have been happy with their accuracy and ease of use. NCI T&B training is the first time I got to play with Testo and I went right out and bought it afterwards.

    I use a fieldpiece srh2. It comes with a k type with a "sock" and it has a NTC sensor on it that gives it pretty immediately.
