This Open Thermal Probe offers more rapid temperature readings. The probe is for use on dry surfaces and can be mounted to beakers, distillation columns, and other surfaces using steel bands. It is compatible with LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT and the BrickPi.
The Dexter Industries Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIR) reads surface temperatures of objects. It is a non-contact thermometer based on the MLX90614. This sensor works with BrickPi3, NXT, and EV3Dev (not EV3-G)
