Temperature Sensor - Fast Response   Home / SmartQ Sensors  

A different type of thermometer, with low thermal mass and quick response times. Ideal for recording temperatures from low grade heat sources. 

The quick response times let you monitor changes in temperature over short times. This is not water, acid or alkali resistant, if this is required use the standard temperature sensor.

Teaching applications:
  • Changes in skin temperature
  • Temperature changes in gas compression / expansion
  • Effect of insulation
  • Long term monitoring of a dry environment
  • Small sensor bead, 2mm diameter
  • Two ranges, Centigrade, Fahrenheit
  • Low thermal inertia
  • Fast response
  • Flexible sensor lead
  • PVC cable insulation working range -10 – 85oC.
  • Flexible cable makes it ideal for measurement in confined spaces.


-30°C to +110°C (Resolution 0.1°C)

What happens to temperature of gas if pressure is changed (Physics (14-18) : Light, Sound & Pressure eBook)
The investigation uses a fast temperature sensor threaded into a syringe, as the syringe plunger is pushed in or out the sensor records any change in temperature.

Boyles Law (Physics (14-18) : Light, Sound & Pressure eBook)
In this investigation the snapshot mode of sensing science laboratory is used to collect the pressure information for a fixed mass of gas that is being compressed in volume. The function wizard is then used to produce the graph of P vs. 1/V .
