Brew Data has developed a full line of high quality, industrial grade, solid state temperature probes that are designed to work well with LabJack's DAQ hardware. These probes are accurate, easy to wire and install, and can be used in a wide variety of applications. They are available in a variety of styles and lengths.
All probes use solid state temperature sensors, which gives them an advantage in accuracy and ease of use compared to other sensor types such as RTDs or thermocouples. Solid state sensors have their signal conditioning electronics build along side the actual sensor, so they can directly drive an analog to digital converter without any extra signal conditioning. Also, because of how solid state sensors are measured, these probes don't have any special wiring requirements, and can be connected to cables using simple wire nuts.

There are many other advantages to Brew Data's line up compared to other temperature probes. They are ESD protected and are compensated to drive long lines or capacitive loads. They can also measure temperatures ranging from -40C to 125C with only one positive power supply. All probes are made from 316 stainless steel and are designed to be used in industrial environments. This makes them ideal for use in breweries, food and beverage production, or any other application with sanitary or watertight requirements.
Every one of Brew Data's probes are designed to be compatible with LabJack's equipment. No extra circuitry, or signal conditioning is needed. Brew Data even uses the UE9 for probe quality assurance and development and U3 devices in control systems.
Here's an overview of some of the different temperature probes offered by Brew Data:
The straight probe style is available in 6", 9", and 12" lengths.
This probe has a spring loaded fitting to mount inside of a thermowell. It comes with a watertight PVC connection head, and is available in 6", 9", and 12" lengths.
This probe comes with an 1.5” Tri-Clamp sanitary fitting and a PVC connection head.
This probe also uses a Tri-Clamp sanitary fitting. When removed from service and the M12 connector is sealed by hand tightening the cap, the entire assembly becomes waterproof to IP68 standards. The sensor is then dishwasher safe and is resistant to caustic cleaners and acid sanitizers.
