The outdoor air temperature sensor features a fast-response, precision thermistor sensing element. The sensing element is completely sealed from the environment in a fully potted metal housing with a PVC solar shield that prevents false readings from direct sunlight. The temperature sensor offers a standard temperature accuracy of ±0.2°C from 0°C to 70°C and standard resistance values ranging from 3,000Ω to 10,000Ω. According to the manufacturer, the cost-effective design of the outdoor air temperature sensor is ideal for use in residential and commercial building automation controls. The sensor threads easily into a mounting hole and is available with options like a weatherproof electrical box for easy and rugged installation, a variety of sensor performance values, and alternate configurations for the PVC solar shield.
