Figure 1. TMP115 probe.

TMP115 is a wide-range temperature-only probe for measurement in extreme conditions. The probe body can be integrated with RFL100 or connected using a cable. The sensor tip is permanently connected to the probe body with a thin cable. Available as 50 cm (1 ft 7.7 in) and 3 m (9.8 ft) long versions.

If using a probe holder, align it to this groove.
Plastic sleeve that locks the probe body in place when integrated with RFL100. Diameter 14 mm (0.55 in) at this point.
Probe body with measurement electronics. Attach from this area if using a cable tie. Diameter 12 mm (0.47 in) at this point. Operating temperature range −40 … +60 °C (−40 … +140 °F).
Sensor cable. Do not cut or bend into a tight loop. Numbering labels included with the probe splitter accessory are designed to be attached to this cable.
Sensor tip, diameter 4.8 mm (0.19 in). Secure using a cable tie or insert into thermal dampener block for added thermal mass. Insert into the probe support accessory when using together with a CO2 probe. Operating temperature range −196 … +90 °C (−320.8 … +194 °F).

The operating temperature range of the sensor tip is much wider than that of the probe body. Leave the probe body outside the measured environment if possible, and avoid inserting it in environments that are outside its operating range.

When working with equipment in extremely cold temperatures, use appropriate personal protective equipment such as thermally insulated gloves and clothing. Wear protective eyewear if working with coolants such as liquid nitrogen, and observe safe handling and storage precautions.
