Spectrum Announces General Purpose Temperature Sensor

Spectrum Sensors and Controls introduces a general purpose temperature sensor that combines excellent thermal response, high accuracy and rugged construction in a low cost package. This sensor assembly is easy to use to monitor air temperatures or it can be installed in a thermowell for liquid sensing which makes it ideal for standard controllers or data loggers. Spectrum’s general purpose temperature sensor options include various cable lengths, multiple connectors & terminations and a variety of sensor values & accuracies. These sensors are priced at approx. $10.00 each @ 250 pcs.

Spectrum's general purpose temperature sensorSpectrum’s general purpose temperature sensor features a sturdy construction with a fully potted metal housing that encloses the fast response thermistor element and a plastic molded shell that thermally isolates the assembly from the environment and also adds a degree of strain relief. This sensor is available in a variety of thermistor resistance values ranging from 2,252 to 10,000 and RvT curves and comes standard with 10 feet of AWG#22 PVC jacketed cable. This temperature sensor offers a standard temperature accuracy of ±0.2°C from 0°C to 70°C.
