Slow-response, frequency-output temperature sensor, for high-accuracy industrial and environmental monitoring at fixed sites.
Intended primarily for use on moored and fixed-site temperature measuring systems, the SBE 3S can also be used as a component in custom systems or for high-accuracy industrial and environmental temperature monitoring applications. The low noise characteristics of the SBE 3S allow the use of hybrid frequency measuring techniques to obtain rapid sampling with very high resolution; 40 µ°C resolution can be readily obtained at a 6 Hz sampling rate. The superior performance of the SBE 3S results from its optimized electronic design, superior calibration, and quality testing program. The SBE 3S has a time response of approximately 0.6 sec and an initial accuracy of 0.001 °C, and is typically stable to 0.002 °C/year.
