The impedance of a sensor and it's associated external circiutry.
The electrical resistance between two phases of a sensor under DC and mentioned temperature.

Characteristics of a sensor which depend on a change of the measurand within a certain time.
Is the ability of a sensor to deliver reproduceable output signals. That means that under same conditions at the same measurant(s) the sensor should give the same output (in % FSO).
The ability of a sensor to keep the validity of the calibration characteristics over a specified period of time within specified limits.
An unrequested change of the output signal which is not in relation to a change of the measurand. (This effect is unusual for quartz and other monocrystals but it occurs at ceramics moreoften).
The maximum change of the output signal at any measurand value within the measuring range caused by a vibration of specified amplitudes and frequencies along a specific axis (in %FSO).
The maximum change of the output signal at any measurand value within the measuring range caused by an acceleration along a specific axis.
Temperature gradient error
A temporary change of the output signal at a constant measurand value because of a changing sensor temperature (fluid or ambient).
The highest change of the output signal from room temperature to maximum operating temperature.
Thermal zero shift
A change of the output zero due to a change of temperature.
A change of the output zero over a period of time.
Measurand temperature range
The range of measurand temperatures where the sensor is operating at given conditions limited by the minimum and maximum measurant temperature.
Operating temperature range

Rated temperature range
The range of temperature where the sensor keeps its conditions.
Reference straight line
An approximated line in the measurant- output- diagram where the maximum output deviations from the line are equal in positive and negative signal direction. In practice the best straight line has a forced 0 wich means that a 0 at the measurant is a 0 at the output signal.
Relative linearity error
Difference between highest and lowest deviation of the "best straight line" with forced zero at the output signal during a calibration cycle (in % of the FSO).
