STANDARDS FOR RESISTANCE TEMPERATURE SENSORS (RTDs)

There are numerous standards around the world and the goal of this part of the site is to eventually catalog most, if not all, of them. This is a start with links to many of the organizations involved, if they are on the Web. The ones we know the best are those published by ASTM and those standards that deal with radiation thermometers. We shall be searching the Web and the Net for more details. If you can add to this page, just email your information and we will include it as we are able to verify and edit the page.


ASTM Standards Related to Temperature and Calibration:

E 1594-99 Standard Guide for the Expression of Temperature
