Temperature  Measurement FAQ

 

1. How long does it take to get a reading?

2. How to convert temperature scales?

1. How long does it take to get temperature reading?

Since temperature electrodes (and sensors) have slow time response, we recommend you use three times the specified time constant of your electrode (or sensor).

2. How to convert temperature scales?

Simply use the following temperature Conversion equations:

 

Kelvin: K= C + 273.15
Centigrade: C = (F-32) x 5/9 
Fahrenheit: F = (9/5 x C) +32 
Rankin: R= F + 459.67

 

Note: 5/9 = 0.5555555 and 9/5 = 1.8

For example: 25.01C = 198.16K = 77.018F = 536.688R
