How to calibrate a Continuum sensor?

Issue

What is the best method for calibrating a thermistor?

Environment

Input Temperature sensors

Thermistors

Cause

There is no documentation that details how to calibrate a Continuum sensor.

Resolution

There is no requirement to calibrate a Continuum Thermistor sensor, Thermistors are factory trimmed to provide an accurate temperature / resistance curve to within the tolerances defined in the datasheet.

One exception to this could be if the connecting cable was of excessive length to add additional impedance to the circuit, in this situation the input point conversion line could be used to subtract an offset:

Enter "ElecValue - x" where x is a factor to compensate for the cable impedance.
