A systematic approach leading to a unique empirical determination of individual thermocouple characteristics is described. This is based on the application of four premises whose formulation is justified by the results. Typical thermocouple calibration data are analyzed, and the most probable results are presented. Improved tables of thermocouple reference values are given.
