Temperature Sensor

Product Code: CI-6605A


This low thermal mass Temperature Sensor ensures a quick response and negligible impact on measured temperatures. Temperature can be measured in degrees Celsius, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin.

This is a two piece sensor that includes a stainless steel sensing element for durability. Other PASCO temperature probes may also be used with this sensor. The sensor consists of the stainless steel probe, a 3-foot cable, an 8-pin connector and tubing to facilitate a tight fit with standard stoppers.

Note: This sensor is an upgrade to the CI-6505B Temperature Sensor. This new temperature sensor must be used with DataStudio software, version 1.8 or later.

Teflon® covers (CI-6549), for use in harsh liquids or chemical solutions, are available as an accessory.

Typical Applications

  • Conduct general temperature experiments
  • Measure rapid temperature changes found in endothermic-exothermic reaction experiments
  • Observe freezing and boiling points and/or heat of fusion
  • Environmental monitoring (terrariums, weather, soil studies)
  • Chemical kinetics and reaction rates
  • Biochemical and enzymatic reactions
  • Microbiology studies


  • Stainless Steel sensing element for durability
  • Thermistor for fast response and wider range
  • Rubberized handle for easy grip, specially shaped to rest on the lip of lab glassware
