Reference EN 60584-1:1995
Title Thermocouples - Part 1: Reference tables
Project Number 6717
Abstract/Scope Establishes a set of reference tables for the seven most commonly used types of commercially available thermocouples, giving both electromotive force as a function of temperature and temperature as a function of electromotive force. Gives polynominal expressions from which the reference values can be computed. The reference tables are based on fundamental research and are consistent with the current edition of the International Practical Temperature Scale (1968) and are not limited to applications in the field of industrial process measurement and control.

Normative reference (6)  

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
