Calibration of temperature sensor

Tue Jul 30, 2013 2:07 am

I have a temperature sensor with accuracy that can vary +/- 1deg celsius. I would like to do some form of calibration. To do this, I need a surface with a stable temperature reference. Has someone done something similar in the past? The problem I have now is how to get a surface with a stable temperature.

Well, at sea level melt-water from ice (that still has ice in it) is always at 0 degrees Celsius.

Alternatively, do what everyone else does and cross-calibrate with a thermometer you trust.
