Wireless Temperature Sensor

Description

Easy-to-use, rugged (dustproof and water-resistant) and with high resolution, the Wireless Temperature Sensor also connects directly to all your devices without the need for an interface.

Overview

This durable, wireless, high-resolution sensor features a stainless steel temperature probe for the most demanding of applications. It can be used in a wide array of experiments and activities as it measures small but significant temperature changes produced by chemical reactions, convection currents, and even skin temperatures.

The Wireless Temperature Sensor can be used anywhere you’d use a digital thermometer, but does so much more to connect students directly to the data in real-time.

Students can access instant temperature readings but also continuously monitor, log and plot temperature data in SPARKvue on nearly any connected device.

Note:  The rugged sensor housing/handle is rated for temperatures of -10 ºC to 40 ºC. This means it cannot be subjected to the same extremes as the stainless steel probe. For extremely low or high-temperature applications we recommend the Electrode Support to keep the sensor in the proper position during experiments.

Special Features

  • Simplicity: just pair and go, no cables and adapters to manage
  • Variable sampling rate for capturing small fast changes or experiments that run for hours, days, or weeks.
  • Features convenient Bluetooth wireless connectivity and long-lasting coin cell battery
  • Logs temperature data directly onto the sensor for long-term experiments.
  • Dust, dirt and sand proof and water-resistant (1 meter for 30 minutes)

Feeling and Measuring Temperature

In this lab, students use a temperature sensor to compare the results of measuring temperature to how the temperature feels.

Properties of Water

In this lab, students will use a stainless steel temperature sensor to explore how the properties of water can be explained by the molecular structure of water.

Evidence of a Chemical Reaction

Use a fast response temperature sensor to distinguish between physical changes and chemical reactions and identify unknown changes as either physical changes or chemical reactions using evidence to support your decision.

Specific Heat

In this lab, students use a fast response temperature sensor to determine the identity of an unknown metal by calculating the specific heat of the metal and comparing it to a list of known values.

Investigating Specific Heat

In this lab, students explore specific heat by measuring the temperatures of water and sand under an incandescent bulb. Then, they use a calorimeter to precisely measure the specific heat of each.

Modeling Chemistry

In this lab, students use temperature, pH, and conductivity sensors to explore chemical and physical changes and analyze them for ambiguity. This lab helps students improve their understanding of sensors and representing reactions…

Radiation Energy Transfer

In this lab, students use a temperature sensor to determine the effect the color of a container has on the temperature of water in the container as it is heated using radiant energy.

Decomposition

In this lab, students will investigate the rate of decomposition in different soil and substrate samples.

Measuring The Speed Of A Reaction

Students use a spectrometer to determine the order of a reaction and the effect of variables on the reaction rate.

Energy from Food

How much energy is stored in your food?

Photosynthesis and Cell Respiration in a Terrarium

In this lab, students will use an oxygen sensor, carbon dioxide sensor, and a temperature sensor to monitor a closed system (terrarium). After conducting their first study, students will be tasked with designing additional investigations…

Investigating Solar Energy

In this lab, students will use temperature sensors to measure changes in temperature as black coffee is warmed by sunlight.
