The Oakton 93824-00 general purpose 400-series thermistor probe has a large, 10-inch long probe tip with a 0.188 inch diameter and is used to measure temperature readings within the -30 to 100 degrees C (-22 to 212 degrees F) range. A thermistor probe, also known as a sensor, measures the temperature of a solution or substance, and is commonly used to test in liquids or semi-solids in field and laboratory applications. This probe includes a five-foot, PVC-coiled cable with strain relief for protection from repeated flexing and tugging. It has an easily gripped, five-inch long glass-filled nylon handle to provide maximum heat insulation and impact resistance. The handle features fingerstops to prevent the probe from rolling, and to prevent fingers from sliding, when inserting the probe into hard materials. The probe has a stainless steel 316 sheath (tip casing) for durability, strength, and abrasion resistance. It has a general-purpose tip designed for most common and liquid immersion applications. It comes with a 0.25-inch phono plug connector.
The 93824-00 probe is intended for use with Oakton 400-series meters. The probe can also be used with Oakton 500-series meters, but requires conversion chart consultation. Thermistors have excellent accuracy over biological ambient temperature ranges when compared to thermocouple or resistance temperature detectors (RTDs). However, thermistors have a limited temperature range that usually cannot exceed 150 degrees F (300 degrees C). Response times tend to be faster than other types of probes.
A probe, or sensor, is used along with a thermometer to assist in the measurement of temperature, in shipping and storage, laboratories and industrial plants, greenhouses and cold rooms, and museums and libraries.
Oakton Instruments manufactures an array of scientific instruments for research, industrial, and educational uses. Since 1991, Oakton has distributed a wide variety of instruments such as meters, electrodes, and transmitters. Oakton is based in Vernon Hills, IL, and has facilities in Europe, Asia, and China.
