What are DIN and JIS? These are the different kinds of standardization that can be used for RTD. 

On one hand, DIN is the short form for Deutsche Institut für Normung, or the German Institute for Standardization. On the other hans, JIS stands for Japanese Industrial Standards.

Usually, when you buy a new resistance temperature detector (RTD) from a manufacturer, you can choose between DIN and JIS standards. Subsequently, when you configure a temperature transmitter or a control system, you need to know which standard your sensor follows.

When we talk about the JIS standard, the temperature coefficient is 0.003916 ohm per degree Celsius. The DIN standard has a value of 0.00385. Both calibrate to 100 ohms at 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). Before configuring, make sure you have the right temperature coefficient for your standard. Also, remember that the market has more standards than those two.
