The TempVue™10 represents the next generation of air-temperature measurement sensors, meeting all relevant World Meteorological Organization (WMO) temperature recommendations.
Designed with the customer in mind, the TempVue 10 easily interfaces with Campbell Scientific or third-party data loggers and fits a wide range of passive solar radiation shields. The sensor comes with a short, attached cable and terminates with an M12 connector, which provides exceptional convenience, environmental protection, and data integrity for use in a variety of applications.
The sensor consists of a wire-wrapped, four-wire Pt100 Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) element encapsulated in an epoxy-filled, stainless-steel housing. The thin yet robust housing, combined with the Pt100 sensing element, provide the first true WMO-compliant sensor to meet the 20-second step response time with an ambient wind speed of only 1 m/s (3.3 ft/s).
The TempVue 10 has a maximum measurement uncertainty of only 0.3 Kelvin over the entire measurement range of -80° to +60°C, with only 0.1 Kelvin over the most common temperature range of -40° to +40°C.
