International Standards

The current international standard for platinum resistance thermometers is the IEC publication 751 Amendment 2, 1995.

It defines the relationship between Temperature and resistance thus,

For the range -200°C to 0°C

Rt=R0 [ 1 + At + Bt2 + C(t-100°C)t3]

For the range °C to 850°C

Rt=R0( 1 + At + Bt2)

For the quality of platinum commonly used in industrial platinum resistance thermometers, the values of the constants are:

A = 3,9083 x 10 -3°C-1
B = -5,775 x 10 -7°C-2
C = -4,183 x 10 -12°C-4
