060A-2 Air Temperature Sensor

The Model 060A-2 is designed for general-purpose ambient air temperature measurement. Met One Instruments’ temperature sensors are precision, extended-range thermistor devices that accurately measures ambient air temperature in field settings. This precise performance is a benefit of the sensors’ high resistance sensitivity, which eliminates problems associated with line lead length, noisy environments, and poor connections.


The solid-state, multi-element thermistor devices produce a relatively large resistance change per degree of temperature change, allowing the use of normal signal voltages without self-heating of the sensor. When used with signal conditioning modules, the resultant output is a precise analog voltage.


  • Rapid response time; 10 seconds in still air
  • Calibration traceable to NIST
  • Interchangeable without recalibration
  • High resistance values to minimize signal line resistance
  • ‘Free air’ suspension of thermistor bead
