                              Description

                              The Pressure Sensor (0-700 kPa) is an absolute gas pressure sensor. It measures applied external pressure relative to zero pressure reference sealed inside the sensor. The Pressure sensor’s range is 0-700 kPa (0-6.9 atm or 0–7,000 mbar). 

                              Included with this sensor are a plastic tube with a Luer Lock Connector, suitable for experiments in small containers as syringes and valves.

                              Common usage

                              The Pressure Sensor is commonly used in Biology and Chemistry experiments, such as demonstrating Boyle’s Law, Gay- Lussac’s Law or measuring the rate of a chemical reaction.

                                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.
