I have a customer that is using an LM60BIM3 temp sensor on one of their outdoor products. This product is exposed to environmental temps down to -40C. They want to know the following:
1. What accuracy can they expect from this device below the rated -25C temp?
2. Is there a risk of component failure if the device is exposed to temps below -25C?
They are in the process of switching to the LM60CIM3 device (-40C to +125), but have some product in the pipeline at this point and want to better understand their risk.
The device will not be damaged at cold temperatures down to -40C. I assume they are using the LM60B - the accuracy will just degrade by a degree or so when the go below -20.
