This durable, wireless, high-resolution sensor features a stainless steel temperature probe for the most demanding of applications. It can be used in a wide array of experiments and activities as it measures small but significant temperature changes produced by chemical reactions, convection currents, and even skin temperatures.
The Wireless Temperature Sensor can be used anywhere you'd use a digital thermometer, but does so much more to connect students directly to the data in real time.
Students can access instant temperature readings but also continuously monitor, log and plot temperature data in SPARKvue on nearly any connected device.
Note: The rugged sensor housing/handle is rated for temperatures of -10 ºC to 40 ºC. This means it cannot be subjected to the same extremes as the stainless steel probe. For extremely low or high temperature applications we recommend the Electrode Support to keep the sensor in the proper position during experiments.
PASCO products that use Bluetooth® 4 technology - wireless sensors, smart carts, and the AirLink Interface - require the latest versions of our software. PASCO Capstone 1.11.1 is available for Mac and Windows. SPARKvue 3.1.2 is available for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Chromebooks.
Any current model Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or Android phone will support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth 4 devices. Also, any Windows 10 device w/ Creators Edition 1703 or later will support direct connection.
All other windows computers/tablets, all Chromebooks and older Macs currently require the PS-3500 USB Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter to connect to PASCO’s Bluetooth 4 devices.
Full compatibility details are available, including compatibility information for older computing devices.
In logging mode wireless sensors collect data to their onboard memory for hours, days, weeks or even months at a time without needing to be connected to a computer, tablet, Chromebook or smartphone.
When the experiment is concluded, simply connect the sensor to a device running PASCO software and download all the measurements it recorded.
Take a look at how easy it is to get connected and collect data with our Wireless Temperature Sensor or the rest of our new line of simple, powerful and cost effective Bluetooth® Smart devices.

Windows devices, Chromebooks and older Macs lack native Bluetooth® Smart support and require an adapter to use PASCO wireless products.
All current model Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets or phones support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth Smart devices and do not require the adapter.
Full compatibility details are available.
