Probe/QNW1Thermistor Probe with Bent Neck and program for calibration
The Probe/QNW1 is a thermistor probe of the same style as the standard Series 400 probe available from other sources. This probe has a stainless steel tip. When the connector on the probe is plugged into the back of a TC 1 Temperature Controller, the temperature will be displayed on the front panel and be available to the user through the communication connections in the back of the controller. A Windows program, CAL/Probe, is provided with the probe. To calibrate, insert the probe in the in the probe hole found on the top of the cuvette holder, run CAL/Probe and follow instructions. The probe must be calibrated before use. Probe/QNW1 differs from its sister product, Probe/QNW2, simply in the bend of the wires at the top. This bend is required in some spectrometers that have lids very close to the top of a cuvette. We recommend that the probe be used in a sample water run, before the final experiment to avoid possible sample contamination.
