The Go Direct Temperature Probe is a rugged, general-purpose sensor that students can use to monitor temperature. It connects via Bluetooth® wireless technology or via USB to your device.


Unlike a traditional thermometer, Go Direct Temperature allows students to collect real-time temperature measurements of a single instance or over a period of time. Its range and wireless capability make Go Direct Temperature the go-to sensor for real-world applications.

Use this sensor in a variety of experiments:

  • Conduct endothermic and exothermic reactions.
  • Investigate the freezing and melting of water.
  • Measure the energy content of foods.
  • Examine the absorption of radiant energy.
  • Monitor environmental conditions.

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 2 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.
