Tech Note 71 Detail

Temperature response

Affected Products:

CI-6549 Teflon Sensor Covers

Problem/Symptom:
What happens to the temperature response when a cover is placed over the temperature sensor?

PASCO Solution:
The Teflon cover may cause the temperature sensing device to have a slower response to changes in temperature.

To improve response to temperature changes, make sure that the end of the sensor is in close contact with the inside of the cover.

One way to do this is to press the end of the sensor on a hard surface such as a table top to flatten the cover against the end of the sensor.

The cover is reusable. Be sure to rinse off all chemicals before storing the cover or sensor.
