It does use electricity and is a measuring device.

"immersed" is a good synonym.....

let's recap

industrial use
not shrink tubing, but you've got the right idea here
It does use electricity and is a measuring device.
"immersed" is a good synonym.....
temperature is a variable

I guess that throws out my original thought of it being used for water skiing.

oh well
