Calibration of Low Temperature Sensors

Industry and R&D

Dr. rer. nat. Matthias Schneider

+49-351-4081-5126

According to the comparative measurement method

Accurate and reliable measurements are the requirements for high-quality research and development or industrial production. Using the comparative measurement method the following sensors can be calibrated:

  • Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD) with positive temperature coefficient (like Platinum or Rhodium-Iron RTDs)
  • RTD with negative temperature coefficient (like Germanium or Cernox™ RTDs)
  • Diode and thermocouples.

With an automatic measuring station several temperatures according to a sample point table will be adjusted. The calibration is carried out with secondary thermometers that are calibrated by an authority. Furthermore a fix point check with LHe or LN2 will be performed. In addition, a calbriated Cernox sensor is available for measurements in the low temperature range. The measuring facility allows the calibration of about 30 sensors at once.
