magnifier icon

A faster response version of our TMC6-HD complete with a plated copper sensor probe that can be mounted to a pipe or flat surface. The sensor is packaged with its own accessories for either strapping to a pipe or attaching to a flat surface.  For use with HOBO U-Series, UX120-006M external-channel data loggers or ZW series wireless datanodes.

Parts Included:

  • Thermal grease is included for improved thermal conductivity. 
  • two tie wraps
  • a screw


  • Faster response time
  • Suitable for pipe mounting
  • Accessories included
  • Can be plugged directly into the external input jacks of U12, UX120, or ZW Family loggers to expand the range of measurement options and applications.

The TMC6-HE Sensor is for use in Indoor environments
