| Temperature Coefficientof Resistance ( TCR )|
| Certain resistance material undergo a large|
change in resistance due to temperature changes.
These changes are controllable and repeatable
making it highly suitable for measuring
temperatures. RTD's are a case of this.
| TCR is measured in parts per million per C|
(ppm/C), i.e. a 1 ohm resistor will change in
value by 0.0045 ohms for every 1C change in
temperature for a 4500ppm/C wire.
| Use this tab to calculate either the resistance|
change or temperature change based on different
standard resistance material.
| Use the Temperature tab to convert Farenheit to|
Centigrade. Temperatures must be in C.
