                          Description

                          Fourier’s stainless steel Temperature Sensor is both simple and durable.  It is covered with a protective isolating material, making it significantly stronger than a traditional glass thermometer.  The sensor connects directly to the data logger using a standard mini-din cable.

                          Common usage

                          With a range of -40 °C to 140 °C, it can be used for experiments in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Earth Science, and Environmental Science.  It is particularly well suited for conduction water and other chemical solution temperature measurements.
