Description / Abstract:

This standard specifies the requirements and temperature/resistance relationship for industrial platinum resistance temperature sensors later referred to as "platinum resistors" or "resistors" and industrial platinum resistance thermometers later referred to as "thermometers" whose electrical resistance is a defined function of temperature.

Values of temperature in this standard are in terms of the International Temperature Scale of 1990, ITS-90. Temperatures in degrees Celsius are denoted by the symbol t, except in Table 1 where the full nomenclature t90/°C is used.

The standard covers resistors or thermometers for all or part of the temperature range -200 °C to +850 °C with different tolerance classes, which may cover restricted temperature ranges.

For temperature/resistance relationships with uncertainties less-than 0,1 °C, which are possible only for resistors or thermometers with exceptionally high stability and individual calibration, a more complex interpolation equation than is presented in this standard may be necessary. The specification of such equations is outside the scope of this standard.
