Abstract : A number of relatively elementary tests were run with thermocouples, connectors and potentiometers to determine response characteristics under transient and differential temperature conditions. Results are intended to serve as a guide to observers in obtaining accurate temperature determinations. Under the conditions of the tests, as much as 10 minutes was required before accurate readings could be obtained, while connectors or potentiometers were adjusting to temperature changes. Other effects of temperature differences were also observed. (Author)
