Overview

Precise and Durable Temperature Sensors

A rugged, durable, and precise solid state sensor for measureing temperature.

Product Features
  • 4-20 mA output
  • Marine grade cable with strain relief
  • Fully encapsulated electronics

The Global Water WE700 Temperature Sensor is a high quality, rugged instrument, precision RTD calibrated to US National Standards. The temperature sensor output is 4-20 mA with a two wire configuration. Each sensor is mounted on 25 ft of marine grade cable, with lengths up to 500 ft available upon request. The electronics are completely encapsulated in marine grade epoxy within a stainless steel housing.

What is Temperture and How is it Affected?

Temperature is typically measured in degrees Celsius of Frhrenheit. To accuratly measure temperature the temperature sensor should be shielded from direct sunlight or precipitation and it should be adequately ventilated. Usually “surface” air temperature is measured approximately two meters above the surface. The factors that affect temperature sensors include latitude, the movement of air masses, solar radiation, and nearby bodies of water or land. Typically solar radiation and latitude are the biggest influences on the temperature reading.
