Temperature sensor -10..125 °C
The Temperature sensor 0511 measures temperature and temperature differences in the range of -20°C to 125°C. This sensor uses the NTC thermistor (thermal resistor), which is positioned in a stainless steel tube. The thermistor is a variable resistor whose resistance decreases nonlinearly with increasing temperature. The best-fit approximation of this non-linear characteristic is the so-called Steinhart-Hart equation.
The Temperature sensor is a general-purpose laboratory sensor. It is designed to be used as you would use a thermometer for experiments in chemistry, physics, and biology. Examples of applications are:
• Measuring freezing and boiling points.
• Monitoring endothermic and exothermic reactions.
• Specific heat experiments.
The Temperature sensor has a built-in resistor for automatic sensor identification and can be directly connected to analog BT inputs of the CMA interfaces.
Technical specifications of the sensor are described in its User's guide
