Temperature Sensor - Fast Response

datalogging sensors


Data Harvest

Product Description


This sensor is extremely responsive as it features an exposed thermistor. The thermistor wires are covered by highly flexible heat-shrink tubing.

40-second Temperature sensor - Fast response


Fast Temperature Readings

Ideal for recording temperatures from low grade heat sources, changes in skin temperature or for measuring air temperature in tight or confined spaces.

This sensor is not water, acid or alkali resistant, if this is required use the standard Temperature Sensor with thermistor tube.

This Temperature sensor is not recommended for use with laboratory chemicals.


Practical Teaching

The Fast Response Temperature Sensor is a popular sensor in the SmartQ range and can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:

  • Changes in skin temperature due to exercise and perspiration
  • Body mapping
  • Pressure/Temperature relationship of a gas (compression / expansion)
  • Effect of insulation
  • Long term monitoring of a dry environment

Reg Body Temp (Biology (14-18) eBook)
Use fast responding low heat coefficient thermometer sensors to measure the response of the body to heat and cold as a stimuli from the environment. Introductory activity for homeostasis and control.

Regulation of Body Temp (Exercise) (Biology (14-18) eBook)
Homeostasis is the process by which the internal environment of the body is kept relatively stable despite changes in the external environment. A series of measurements to show the effect of temperature control




What happens to temperature of gas if pressure is changed (Physics (14-18) : Light, Sound & Pressure eBook)
The investigation uses a fast temperature sensor threaded into a syringe, as the syringe plunger is pushed in or out the sensor records any change  in temperature.

Boyles Law (Physics (14-18) : Light, Sound & Pressure eBook)
In this investigation the snapshot mode of sensing science laboratory is used to collect the pressure information for a fixed mass of gas that is being compressed in volume. The function wizard is then used to produce the graph of P vs. 1/V
