Abstract
A battery-operated meter to indicate the Burton still-shade temperature is described. It combines into one reading the effects on human heat loss of air temperature, wind and radiant exchange. A transistor and two diodes sense these parameters, producing voltages which are summed with appropriate weights by an operational amplifier to cause proportional deflection of a meter movement. Calibration data is given for the sensors.
