Product Description

dThermal Series by Dexter Industries is a line of temperature sensors for the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT system.  The sensors offer an increased range of operating temperatures and a high level of accuracy. These thermal sensors can easily be incorporated into chemistry, engineering, and environmental experiments with NXT-G and Labview.

  • Thermal sensors for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT.
  • Plugs directly into your NXT sensor ports.
  • Easily programmed in NXT-G, Labview, RobotC.
  • Widest temperature range: -50C to 150C
  • Easily incorporated into datalogging experiments in chemistry, physics, and engineering.

Constructed of 316 stainless steel, this rugged temperature probe is encased in a stainless steel shaft that can be used to measure temperatures in water, organics, ionic solutions, most acids, and bases. The probe has a 1/4″ OD, and is 6″ long, making it ideal for most laboratory experiments and sealed distillation experiments.  Solid construction offers superior strain relief.

Technical Specifications:

  • Temperature Operating Range: -50C (-58 F) to 150 C (302 F)
  • Accuracy: +/- 0.5 C
  • Response Time: 90% in 50 Seconds
  • Precision:-50C – 0C +/-1 C 0C – 50C +/-0.1 C 50 C – 100C +/- 0.5 C 100 C – 150 C +/- 2 C
