This open thermal probe offers more rapid temperature readings. The probe is for use on dry surfaces and can be mounted to beakers, distillation columns, and other surfaces using steel bands.
The data line reaches 2 feet for flexibility of setup, and is hooked directly into the NXT. Solid construction and a rugged design with extra protection offers strain relief and a long lifetime.
The photo below shows the open thermal probe fixed by a clamp in a beaker and measuring the temperature of the liquid in the beaker.
