NOTICE:

  • Hold the sensor only by its connector. Touching the sensor may change the resistance value.
  • When measuring, the sensor temperature must be the same as the ambient temperature.

HINT:

As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases (see the graph).

If the resistance is not as specified, replace the thermistor assembly.
