IT-18 Flexible Implantable Microprobe - Implantable in semi-solids and tissue with 18 gauge needle (supplied). Also for immersion in various solutions and rectal temperatures of small animals. Totally sheathed in chemical resistant Teflon™. Quited rugged. Maximum Temperature 150°C . Isolated. Probe diameter .050" (14 gauge represents the needle gauge that the probe can be inserted through). Time constant 0.3 seconds.
Time Constant is defined as the time required to reach 63% of final temperature in liquid. An accurate reading is obtained when the reading stops changing, typically 5-10 time constants.
Maximum Temperature refers to intermittent use of probe. When probe is used for continuous measurements, maximum temperature should be reduced by 25% unless specified.
