Temperature Sensor in three versions

Temp-UniAmp thermosensor

The Temp-UniAmp thermosensor is a PT1000 element in a robust 2 mm steel casing. It is the standard sensor used for temperature compensation in the UniAmp laboratory portfolio.

TP2000 thermosensor

The TP2000 thermosensor is a robust, mineral-insulated thermocoupler with a tip diameter of 2 mm. The thermosensor can be used for most applications where a temperature measurement is required for monitoring or temperature compensation.

Glass thermomicrosensor

The glass thermomicrosensor has a tip diameter of as little as 200 µm. It consists of a thermocoupler inside a tapered glass capillary. This sensor can be used to determine temperature microgradients in different environments, such as hot springs biofilms, compost piles, and sediments with steep temperature gradients due to volcanic activity.
