Vernier's Surface Temperature Sensor is designed for use in situations in which low thermal mass or flexibility is required, or for a skin temperature measurement. It has an exposed thermistor that results in an extremely rapid response time. This design allows for use in air and water. For temperature measurements in harsher environments that require a more durable probe we recommend Vermier's TMP-BTA Stainless Steel Temperature Probe.

Typical uses for the Surface Temperature Sensor include:
• Skin temperature measurements
• Human respiration studies
• Specific heat experiments
• Heat transfer experiments
• Friction and energy studies

• Temperature range: –25° to 125°C
• Maximum temperature that the sensor can tolerate without damage: 150°C
• Typical Resolution:
     0.08°C (–25 to 0°C)
     0.03°C (0 to 40°C)
     0.1°C (40 to 100°C)
     0.25°C (100 to 125°C)
• Temperature sensor: 20 kΩ NTC Thermistor
• Accuracy: ±0.2°C at 0°C, ±0.5°C at 100°C
• Response time (time for 90% change in reading)
     50 seconds (in still air)
     20 seconds (in moving air)
• Probe dimensions: Probe length (handle plus body) 15.5 cm

Important: For use in air and water only. For temperature measurements in harsher environments we recommend the Stainless Steel Temperature Sensor.
