NRG #110S Temperature Sensor with Radiation Shield, Calibrated

Model Number : NRG #110S

The NRG Systems calibrated #110S temperature sensor is a low-cost, durable integrated circuit temperature sensor that provides a high level voltage output signal. This sensor is ideal for collecting temperature data for energy density calculations and monitoring air temperature at remote sites.

The NRG Systems #110S temperature sensor includes an internal reference, amplifiers, and linearization enclosed in a six-plate UV-stabilized radiation shield. This temperature sensor is also an excellent addition for sites where icing may be a possibility.

The universal mounting assembly mounts quickly to any pipe or tower.
