TS600 Temperature Sensor
Replacement sensor with bead tip. Approximately 7 feet(213 cm) in length. Use with the T-601 Temperature module of the original I-330 modular interface.
The temperature sensor is a 0.125 inch bead thermistor that can detect the temperature of the tissue (skin) on which it is applied. Temperature changes as a function of the amount of blood per fusing the tissue. The arterioles supply blood to the tissue are surrounded by smooth muscle fibers that innervated by the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). When sympathetically aroused, the muscles contract causing vasoconstriction and reducing the blood flow to the skin and producing a decrease in tissue temperature.
For psychophysiological monitoring, the temperature sensor is usually placed on a finger or toe pad and held lightly in place by a hook and look fastener ring. The thermistor cable is then slid between the hook and loop fastener and skin so that the bead tip extends about 1/8 inch beyond the hook and loop fastener.
