I am considering to buy the HTS221 Digital Temperature and Humidity Sensor by STMicroelectronics. The datasheet says the operating temperature of the sensor is from -40°C to 120°C. But on page 33 of the datasheet, they say under accuracy, 15 to 40°C = +/- 0.5°C and 0 to 60°C = +/- 1°C. They never talk about sub-zero and temperatures above 60°C.
Does the operating temperature (-40 to 120°C) mean that this sensor will not melt off during high temperatures like 100°C, but I cannot expect it to measure that temperature?
Does that mean that the temperature sensor can measure only from 0-60°C with the above accuracy and the rest of the measurements are going to be way off?
