PRC100 Standard Reference Series Overview

A series of varying resistor styles and sizes available, depending on the desired application. All part types in this series read 100Ω @ 0°C. ±.12% with an average sensitivity of 0.00385Ω/Ω/°C. These low-cost sensors track like platinum standards but are much more versatile. They are linear tracking special-purpose temperature sensors with TCR characteristics to +6000 ppm/°C. & follow the well defined curve and linear slope of platinum. All part types are in stock & ready for immediate delivery

Rt is defined by IEC standard, pub. 751: alpha = 0.00385 ohm/ohm/°C.*
For range -40°C. to 0°C : RT = Ro[1+At+Bt_+C(t-100°C.) t_]
For range 0°C. to +150°C : RT = Ro(1+At+Bt_)
Constants in this equation:
A = 3.79782 x 10-_ B = 6.502 x 10-7 C= 4.3735 x 10-__
Rt = Ro[1+At+Bt_]
Rt = 100[1+(3.79782 x 10-_ x 100)+(6.502 x 10-7 x 100_) ]
Rt = 100[1+.379782 +.006502]
Rt = 100 x 1.386284
Rt = 138.628 ohms at 100°C.
Rt = Ro[1+At+Bt_+C(t-100) t_]
Rt = 100[1+(-.1519128)+(.00104032)+(.00003918656) ]
Rt = 100 x .8491667
Rt = 100[1+(3.79782 x 10-_ x -40)+(6.502 x 10-7 x -40_)+ (4.3735 x 10-__x (-40-100) x -40_) ]
Rt = 84.916 ohms at -40°C.

*Theoretical curve & slope based on values of the International Practical Temperature Scale (IPTS-68 & 90).

Fixed points are in Degree Celsius (°C.) Ro = 0°C. The other reference temperature used in the equation is +100°C however this can be replaced by any temperature desired with respect to the base temperature of 0°C. The PRC100 Std. Ref. follows a well-defined theoretical curve & linear slope from base 0°C. proving that most reference points are calculable within very close tolerances (Ratio=Rt/Ro)


Then let PRC custom manufacture your wire wound resistor, sensor, or shunt with some of the shortest lead times in the industry. Engineering samples can be supplied at no cost to you in 7-10 days for most jobs. Computer tracking charts are available for reference with certain part types. If you need a specific marking on your part(s) we will custom print your order with the marking you desire & at no additional cost to you. If needed, you can interchange the size, shape, lead dimension, wattage, voltage, current, Ω value, tolerance, & TCR characteristics with most part types. You can check our PRC100 Custom Series or visit our PRC100 Standard Reference Series & see if one of our other parts will satisfy all your requirements.

Engineering Attributes:

100Ω @ 0°C. ±.12% Tol (or ± .3°C & 138.50 Ω @ +100°C.
± .22% (or ± .8°C.) per DIN 43760, Class B.
All PRC100 Sensors are closely matched & repeatable part-to-part. They have the ability to reproduce output readings consistently at the same temperature reference points under the same conditions & in the same direction.
The change in the original resistance (Ro) @ 0°C. is less than ±.1°C. or ±.038% after 10 cycles from 0°C. to +150°C..
Shelf life stability is ±0.002%/year @ 25°C. with no load.
The PRC100 is an ideal compensator to offset drift or negative self-generating change in resistance resulting from an excitation of power to .25W @ +125°C. to zero power @ +150°C.
The time required for our PRC100 to indicate 63.2% of a new impressed temp. from a step change of 0°C. to +100°C. can be customized to your specs, as low as less than 1 second.
