Technical Description

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.
