ECT AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR

Measurements: Temperature

Applications: Greenhouse Management, Soil Respiration, Watershed Characterization

Measure Air Temperature

The simple ECT air temperature sensor is an easy-to-use sensor for measuring the temperature of air (when used with the radiation shield), or other materials.

 

Weatherproof for Long-Term Use

The sensor is completely water proof, submersible, and designed for continuous outdoor use.

 

Plug and Play Technology

The ECT can be used with either the Em5b logger or the Em50 logger series.  However, typical Em50 series logger users prefer to measure humidity in conjunction with their air temperature measurements using the VP-4 Vapor Pressure, Temperature, Barometric Pressure, and Relative Humidity sensor, instead of the ECT Temperature Sensor.
