T-thermistor Chains

The T-Chain is a parameter sensing string of sensors that can collect detailed data on elements such as temperature and pressure. The T-Chain produces detailed thermal data that can be used to determine water column stratification, mixing, internal tides, and other information. The T-Chain consists of a single electrical cable with temperature nodes molded at fixed, userspecified, locations. Each node contains a thermistor within an Inconel protective tube and electronics. The T-Chain consists of a single polyurethane sheathed cable with Kevlar core. The thermistor and electronics are housed in a hermetically sealed Inconel 625 metal tube and metal case, which is then molded into a polyurethane elastomer node. This provides the best possible mechanical protection and water proofing integrity, while maintaining a fast response time [PME Fast Response Systems and Sensors:
