Reference thermometers include a very high accuracy temperature sensor and can be used to provide a temperature comparison for calibration and accuracy of other thermometers and probes when used in conjunction with a stable heat source such as a water bath. The method of comparison occurs when a reference thermometer and the test sensor are both placed in the heat source and the sensors readings are compared to check accuracy.
Eurolec’s range of reference thermometers are calibrated to UKAS standards so the user can be assured of the highest levels of accuracy. The range includes precision reference thermometers which include a high accuracy Pt100 1/10th DIN probe, and a 5-point UKAS Certificate of Calibration. Each certificate will indicate deviations from standards at the following temperature check points: -18°C, 0°C, 40°C, 70°C and 100°C.
