Go Direct® Wide-Range Temperature Probe

Measuring the temperature of a distillation has never been safer—your students can conduct an experiment within the laboratory fume hood while collecting data at their lab station. The Go Direct Wide-Range Temperature Probe connects via Bluetooth® wireless technology or via USB to your device.

SKU: GDX-WRT Categories: , ,


Designed to be used as you would use a thermometer for experiments such as the recrystallization of benzoic acid, simple and fractional distillations, determination of boiling points, the synthesis and analysis of aspirin and other organic compounds, and more.

  • Range of –20 to 330°C allows for investigations such as determining the melting point of caffeine or the boiling point of different vegetable oils
  • RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) technology establishes a ±0.5°C accuracy.

Rechargeable Battery—Ready When You Are

The robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation when using the sensor wirelessly. Monitor battery life directly from our free Graphical Analysis 4 app or LabQuest 3 App. Should the battery run low, simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting—no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.

Wired or Wireless—The Flexibility to Choose

Our Go Direct sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook, or computer using our free Graphical Analysis 4 app—no additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth® wireless technology, allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.
