Electrical – tolerance of sensor and how to find it?


What does tolerance of a sensor specify? I believe it should be given on the datasheet. However, I could not find the tolerance of TMP36 temperature sensor.

Based on what I see here, you have a tolerance of ±2°C on the accuracy of its temperature reading. Also a ±0.5°C tolerance on the linearity.

If you are looking for the voltage operation range voltage increments per °C you can also find this on the datasheet.
