I'm sure this is a basic question but I am unable to find an answer anywhere online that explains it in a simple way.
I am researching NTC sensors and figuring out how to use them.
I want to know that the advantages or disadvantages of changing the NTC resistance will be ?
So far I have the assumption that a larger resistance ( 50K ) could meausre a greater range of temperatures ? ( than say a 10K )
But if both are 1% tolerance the larger resistance would not be as accurate because the range is bigger ?
Am I on the correct track here?
Also I take it that in my voltage divider circuit I should get a better tolerance resistor if I want the reading to be more accurate ? ( 1% instead of a 5% )
I am looking to measure temperatures of around 90 - 130 degrees C, with an accuracy of around 1 or 2 degrees, if that makes a difference.
