Probes specifications data sheet

Thermistors

  • larger electrical signal for a given temperature change than other sensors
  • fast response time
  • high accuracy (± 0.1°C)
  • preferred sensor over the operating range -50 to +150°C
  • long cable lengths possible without significant errors
  • mini thermistors available for miniature/needle probes

Thermocouples

  • suitable for temperatures from -25°C up to +250°C
  • fast response time
  • moderate accuracy (± 0.5°C)
  • suitable for a wide range of applications from delicate to heavy industrial

Platinum resistance

  • suitable for temperatures from -50°C up to +250°C
  • good accuracy (± 0.3°C)
  • good long term stability
  • choice of Pt100 and Pt1000 sensors
  • choice of 2 and 4 wire where compensation of cable resistance required
  • Capacitive humidity and temperature probes

Humidity probes

Grant provides the following combined temperature/humidity probe (RHT-G-Z) for use with Squirrel data loggers:
These are available with 2, 5 or 10 metres of cable (example code for 2m RHT-G-Z2-0)

Rotronic HYGROMER™ with Pt100 sensor
