Technical test specifications for temperature sensors to be used in building automation were set up in the framework of eu.bac (European Building Automation and Controls Association). The test requirements are specified according to the field of application of the sensor: room temperature sensors, outdoor temperature sensors, duct air temperature sensors, immersion sensors and contact sensors. The following parameters will be determined: sensor accuracy in the corresponding temperature range, time constant and wall coupling (the latter only for room temperature sensors).
The test programme is currently being developed. The test will be carried out within the framework of the eu.bac certification programme.
