Fast Response Thermistor, TP
Part #: TSD202A, TSD202B, TSD202C, TSD202D, TSD202E, TSD202F

The TSD202 series thermistor transducers are small, fast response temperature probes for human and animal uses.

TSD202A Fast-response thermistor
TSD202B Skin Temp thermistor
TSD202C Dry or Wet bath thermistor
TSD202D Fingers or Toes thermistor
TSD202E General-purpose Temp thermistor
TSD202F Core Temp thermistor

To secure TSD202 transducers in place, use TAPE1 or—recommended for TSD202B—WRAP1.

Compatibility


See Specifications for components.

TSD202A: Very small, fast response temperature probe appropriate for use in locations where temperature changes rapidly, as with the temperature changes of inspired/expired breath.

  • Response time: 0.6 sec
  • Dimensions: 1.7 mm (dia) x 5 mm (long)
  • Replacement sensors available: RX202A

TSD202B: Used to record skin temperature on a variety of body locations. The stainless steel banjo design ensures rapid and uniform recording of skin surface temperatures.

  • Response time: 1.1 sec
  • Size: 9.8 mm (dia) x 3.3 mm (high)

IMPORTANT! The copper wire used in the TSD202B transducer is fragile and users should be careful not to pull on the cable when removing the device from the participant—it’s important not to bend or torque the cable where the cable connects to the transducer element. To secure the transducer to the skin surface, use BIOPAC WRAP1 or similar self-adhering wrap; WRAP1 is easy to remove and eliminates the risk of pulling on the transducer cable and potentially breaking the transducer. If TAPE1 or similar adhesive is used to attach the transducer, caution should be used when removing the tape from the transducer and the participant.

TSD202C: Stainless steel, extremely durable, tubular probe designed for dry or wet bath temperature measurements.

  • Response time: 3.6 sec
  • Size: 4 mm (dia) x 115 mm (long)

TSD202D: Records skin temperature of the fingers or toes. The probe contains a surface temperature sensing element encased in a polyurethane housing that conforms to curved skin surfaces and includes a stretchy Velcro strap for easy attachment.

  • Response time: 1.1 sec

See SS6 (Fast Response) and SS7 (Banjo) for Telemetry System equivalents.

TSD202E: Small, general-purpose probe, encased in a mylar sheath for ruggedness and durability without sacrificing response time.

  • Response time: 0.9 sec
  • Dimensions: 9.8 mm (long) x 3.3 mm (dia)

TSD202F: A small, waterproof, vinyl-encased probe for core (oral, rectal) temperature recording.

  • Response time: 1.1 sec
  • Dimensions: 9.8 mm (long) x 3.3 mm (dia)
