It is necessary for thermocouple temperature measurement that the electro-motive force (abbreviated
as e.m.f. hereafter) of the thermocouple circuit is precisely measured by a measuring
instrument. A thermocouple is electrically connected to the instrument by a proper pair of
electric cables. IEC 60584-3 standardizes these cables. It specifies identification and manufacturing
tolerances for extension and compensating cables (mineral insulated extension and
compensating cables are not included) provided directly to users of industrial processes.
These tolerances are determined with respect to the e.m.f. versus temperature relationship of
IEC 60584-1. The requirements for extension and compensating cables for use in industrial
process control are specified.
Extension and compensating cables may consist of a single strand (solid) wire or multistranded
wire for which this document is applied. Specification for extension and compensating
conductors of forms of rods, flat wires or strips can be established by agreement between
suppliers and users.

This part of IEC 61757 defines detail specifications for distributed temperature measurement
by a fibre optic sensor, also known as fibre optic distributed temperature sensing (DTS). DTS
includes the use of Raman scattering, Brillouin scattering and Rayleigh scattering effects. In
addition, Raman scattering and Rayleigh scattering based measurements are performed with
a single-ended fibre configuration only. Brillouin scattering based measurements are
performed with a single-ended fibre or fibre loop configuration. The technique accessible from
both sides at same time (e. g. Brillouin optical time domain analysis, BOTDA) is referred to
here as a loop configuration. Generic specifications for fibre optic sensors are defined in
IEC 61757-1:2012.
This part of IEC 61757 specifies the most important DTS performance parameters and defines
the procedures for their determination. In addition to the group of performance parameters, a
list of additional parameters has been defined to support the definition of the measurement
specifications and their associated test procedures. The definitions of these additional
parameters are provided for informational purposes and should be included with the sets of
performance parameters.
A general test setup is defined in which all parameters can be gathered through a set of tests.
The specific tests are described within the clause for each measurement parameter. This
general test setup is depicted and described in Clause 4 along with a list of general
information that should be documented based upon the specific DTS instrument and test
setup used to measure these parameters as per IEC 61757-2-2.
Annex A provides a blank performance parameter table which should be used to record the
performance parameter values for a given DTS instrument and chosen optical test setup
configuration.
Annex B provides guidelines for optional determination of point defect effects.

Temperatures are expressed in degrees Celsius based on the International Temperature Scale of 1990, ITS-90 (symbol t90), and the EMF (symbol E) is in microvolts. The reference functions are polynomials which express the EMF, E in μV, as a function of temperature t90 in °C with the thermocouple reference junctions at 0 °C. Values of EMF at intervals of 1 °C are tabulated in Annex A. For convenience of calculating temperatures, inverse functions are given in Annex B which express temperature as functions of EMF within stated accuracies. This International Standard specifies the tolerances for thermocouples manufactured in accordance with this standard. The tolerance values are for thermocouples manufactured from wires, normally in the diameter range 0,13 mm to 3,2 mm, as delivered to the user and do not allow for calibration drift during use.

IEC 61788-5:2013 covers a test method for the determination of copper to superconductor volume ratio of Cu/Nb-Ti composite superconducting wires. This test method and the alternate method in Annex are intended for use with Cu/Nb-Ti composite superconducting wires with a cross-sectional area of 0,1 mm2 to 3 mm2, a diameter of the Nb-Ti filament(s) of 2 micrometers to 200 micrometers, and a copper to superconductor volume ratio of 0,5 or more. The Cu/Nb-Ti composite test conductor discussed in this method has a monolithic structure with a round or rectangular cross-section. This test method is carried out by dissolving the copper with nitric acid. Deviations from this test method that are allowed for routine tests and other specific restrictions are given in this standard. Cu/Nb-Ti composite superconducting wires beyond the limits in the cross-sectional area, the filament diameter and the copper to superconductor volume ratio could be measured with this present method with an anticipated reduction of uncertainty. Other, more specialized, specimen test geometries may be more appropriate for conductors beyond the limits and have been omitted from this present standard for simplicity and to retain low uncertainty. The test method given in this standard is expected to apply to other superconducting composite wires after some appropriate modifications. The copper to superconductor volume ratio of composite superconductors is used mainly to calculate the critical current density of superconducting wires. The test with the method given in this International Standard may be used to provide part of the information needed to determine the suitability of a specific superconductor. Moreover, this method is useful for quality control, acceptance or research testing if the precautions given in this standard are observed. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2000. It constitutes a technical revision. The main revisions are the addition of two new annexes, 'Uncertainty considerations' (Annex E) and 'Uncertainty evaluation in test method of copper to superconductor volume ratio of Cu/Nb-Ti composite superconductors' (Annex F).

This International Standard specifies the equations and reference tables relating temperature to EMF (electro-motive force) for Gold versus Platinum and Platinum versus Palladium thermocouples. For information and convenience of use it also provides the approximate equations for temperature as functions of EMF. The tables and equations in this standard are intended for use with thermocouples made from elements of purity not less than 99.999 % for Platinum and Gold and of 99.99 % for Palladium, by weight. Tolerances on initial values of EMF versus temperature have not been established for the thermocouples in this standard. Where required, these tolerances should be agreed between the wire manufacturer and the user. Temperatures in this standard are based on the International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90). They are expressed in degrees Celsius, symbol t90. Values of EMF, symbol E/ V, are given in microvolts. This standard does not cover extension or compensating wires for use with the pure-element thermocouples. The questions of their use shall be agreed between the manufacturer and the user.

IEC 60751:2008 specifies the requirements and temperature/resistance relationship for industrial platinum resistance temperature sensors later referred to as 'platinum resistors' or 'resistors' and industrial platinum resistance thermometers later referred to as 'thermometers' whose electrical resistance is a defined function of temperature. Values of temperature in this standard are in terms of the International Temperature Scale of 1990, ITS-90. Temperatures in degrees Celsius are denoted by the symbol t, except in Table 1 where the full nomenclature t90/°C is used. The standard covers resistors or thermometers for all or part of the temperature range 200 °C to +850 °C with different tolerance classes, which may cover restricted temperature ranges. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1983, amendment 1 (1986) and amendment 2 (1995). It constitutes a technical revision. The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: While the temperature/resistance relationship in 4.2 remains unchanged, there are several changes in the other chapters. Most important are: tolerance classes follow a new scheme; tolerance acceptance test is included; hysteresis test is included; several changes in the individual tests; appendices are deleted.
