Go Direct Temperature Probe

Go Direct™ Temperature Probe product image

The Go Direct Temperature Probe is a rugged, general-purpose sensor that students can use to monitor temperature. It directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your platform.

Description

Unlike a traditional thermometer, Go Direct Temperature allows students to collect real-time temperature measurements of a single instance or over a period of time. Its range and wireless capability make Go Direct Temperature the go-to sensor for real-world applications. Because it is also waterproof, it is more durable than sensors that are simply water resistant.

Use this sensor in a variety of experiments:

  • Conduct endothermic and exothermic reactions.
  • Investigate the freezing and melting of water.
  • Measure the energy content of foods.
  • Examine the absorption of radiant energy.
  • Monitor environmental conditions.

Rechargeable Battery—Ready When You Are

The Go Direct robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from our free Graphical Analysis 4 app. Should the battery run low, simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting—no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.

Wired or Wireless—The Flexibility to Choose

Our Go Direct sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook, or computer using our free Graphical Analysis 4 app—no additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth, allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.

Go Direct Temperature Teacher Pack

Buy more and save more. With our Go Direct Temperature Teacher Pack, you receive eight Go Direct Temperature Probes and a convenient charging station that allows you to charge eight Go Direct sensors at a time. The Charging Station works with the following Go Direct sensors: Go Direct pH, Go Direct ORP, Go Direct Electrode Amplifier, Go Direct Conductivity, and Go Direct 3-Axis Magnetic Field.
