What is TCR or Temperature Coefficient of Resistance?
Every wire material has a specific resistivity. As a wire heats up, its resistance will increase in a predictable way based on its TCR.
TCR for a material is usually measured by the wire manufacturer using MIL-STD-202 Method 304, which uses a series of test temperatures. The first series is 25°, 0°, -15°, and -55°C; the second se..
