Platinum RTD Types

Last Modified: June 22, 2016

The following table lists common platinum RTD types and standards. All of these RTD types are supported in NI-DAQmx. Notice that there are some shared standards. The TCR and the Callendar-Van Dusen coefficients are more important than the standards.
