Vernier Surface Temperature Probe

Order code: STS-BTA
Purchase QTY: (Each)1+    
Scientrific's price  $76.00    
Note: Prices do NOT include GST or freight

Vernier's Surface Temperature Sensor is designed for use in situations in which low thermal mass or flexibility is required, or for a skin temperature measurement. It has an exposed thermistor that results in an extremely rapid response time. This design allows for use in air and water. For temperature measurements in harsher environments that require a more durable probe we recommend Vermier's TMP-BTA Stainless Steel Temperature Probe.

Typical uses for the Surface Temperature Sensor include:
Skin temperature measurements
Human respiration studies
Specific heat experiments
Heat transfer experiments
Friction and energy studies

Temperature range: 25 to 125C
Maximum temperature that the sensor can tolerate without damage: 150C
Typical Resolution:
     0.08C (25 to 0C)
     0.03C (0 to 40C)
     0.1C (40 to 100C)
     0.25C (100 to 125C)
Temperature sensor: 20 kΩ NTC Thermistor
Accuracy: 0.2C at 0C, 0.5C at 100C
Response time (time for 90% change in reading)
     50 seconds (in still air)
     20 seconds (in moving air)
Probe dimensions: Probe length (handle plus body) 15.5 cm

Important: For use in air and water only. For temperature measurements in harsher environments we recommend the Stainless Steel Temperature Sensor.
