Below are some useful, interesting and unusual links on the web related to temperature sensors. Some of these links are cataloged on other pages within the site but appear exceptionally useful and are repeated here. Some other interesting and different sites, all related to temperature sensors or measurement but that could not be cataloged on our other pages, are also listed below.  You could say this is a potpourri page that doesn't have any odor (we hope!). Also listed below is a link to a search engine which we find very good. Enjoy and feedback, please. Use Google to search our site or the Web if you can't find what you seek here-----.-->

ASTM's Committee on Temperature
(The American Society for Testing and Materials) There are several subcommittees that comprise the Temperature Committee. They specialize in, develop voluntary standards for, and promote awareness of the standards through various activities and publications. For instance, Subcommittee, E20.04 on Thermocouple Thermometry, developed the ASTM Manual on The Use of Thermocouples that is in its fourth edition. Subcommittees E20.02 (Radiation Thermometery) and E20.05 (Resistance Thermometry) have similar manuals related to their special sensors under development. Subcommittee E20.02 also has conducted two small symposia at NIST headquarters, one of which resulted in an ASTM Special Technical Publication on "Applications of Radiation Thermomeetry". The Temperature Committee meets twice a year at varying locations around the USA. Every meeting includes at least one presentation of new measurement technology and related topics. Consult the website for more details, meetings schedules and contact information. HOT SITE award for outstanding web resource sites

Courtesy of Belfort Instruments.. Metrological terms including many related to temperature and moisture measurement

Courtesy Omega Engineering's Tech Reference section-Not everyone will agree with every term and some seem to be missing (e.g. accuracy, a term most metrologists do not use and most users misuse is there in place of the more technically correct 'uncertainty', the term that one will find on a traceable calibration certificate from a competent source) . However, most of the terms used in instrumentation and measurement are listed and it is more than a good place to look for a definition of terms used in temperature sensors and measurement as well as terms used with other measurement devices!

About the most widely used temperature scale in the world and its founder, Anders Celsius (Note: a very similar scale, the Centigrade Scale, dominated the world until 1968, when the new scale came about due to a revision in the fundamental reference point for the AbsoluteTemperature Scale was changed from the freezing point of water to the triple point of water; a difference of only 0.01 Degrees C. It was enough of a change to warrant a new name for the temperatures measured more commonly in science, industry and commerce).

Rudy Rudolph, Temperature Consultant
A new web site contains a brief but excellent summary on just what emissivity is in terms that the average technical person can understand. He even gives some very practical advice on how to get a quick estimate of the emissivity value if you do not have a clue. Please remember, you must measure carefully and because we have no control over how careful you are or how well you follow his advice, any errors you encounter are your responsibility not Rudy's or ours. Things are not always as easy nor as simple as some brief suggestions may imply.
