- Good resistance to oxidation
- High EMS output
- Good temperature accuracy, sensitivity an stability
- In the temperature -200-0℃, it has better property, the year stability is less than ±3μV
Type T is also used for cryogenic applications. Because of its accuracy it is commonly used in the food industry where accurate measurements are very important.
