Significance and Use
3.1 This test method covers the determination of the change of resistance with temperature for precision resistors and shunts made from sheet materials.
3.2 Materials normally used in the temperature range from 0 to 80°C may be tested using this test method.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the change of resistance with temperature of sheet materials used for shunts and precision resistors for electrical apparatus. It is applicable to materials normally used in the temperature range of from 0 to 80°C.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The metric equivalents of inch-pound units may be approximate.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
