*Temperature Coefficient: 0°–18°C & 28°–50°C. For each °C, add 0.1 × (% rdg + offset) to accuracy spec.
Voltage Burden is less than 26µV + (3.2 * I), where 26µV is the offset voltage specification of the input op-amp, 3.2 is the resistance of the fuse in ohms, and I is the current flowing into the instrument.
