The Global Water Surface Temperature Sensors are high quality,
rugged instruments with a precision RTD calibrated to US
National Standards. The surface temperature sensor's output is
4-20 mA with a two wire configuration. Each of the surface
temperature sensors is mounted on 25 ft of marine grade cable,
with lengths up to 500 ft available upon request. The surface
temperature sensor's electronics are completely encapsulated in
marine grade epoxy within an ABS plastic housing.
Surface Temperature Sensor Applications
The surface temperature sensors are well suited for many
applications including, pipe temperature monitoring, solar panel
temperature, water tanks, control panels, battery monitoring,
and many others.
What is Temperature and How is it Affected?
Temperature is typically measured in degrees Celsius or
Fahrenheit. To accurately measure temperature the surface
temperature sensor should be mounted in direct contact with the
surface to be measured. Using the surface temperature sensor's
included silicone heat transfer compound will ensure that
temperature transfer from the monitored surface to the sensor's
heatsink will be efficient, minimizing the impact of ambient
temperature on the measurement. Dirt or other insulators, like
paper labels, can cause errors in the surface temperature
sensor's reading or cause slower response times.
