Temperature sensor calibration

Q&A Services Temperature

If I need to calibrate my temperature sensors, I have to use a temperature bath or a fluidized bed. Is there another way to do it?

Expert’s answer: Temperature sensor calibration

If you need to calibrate your sensors, then use the temperature bath to verify the sensor curve. Honestly, this is the easiest way to do temperature sensor calibration!

But if you really want to check the transmitter, you can simulate the sensor with a wide range of devices. You don’t need to use the field sensor to verify, but best practices recommend calibrating the set together.
