  • Precision is repeatability between readings, accuracy is closeness of mean of readings to correct value, and resolution is smallest measurable change. The data sheet calls this is a high-accuracy temperature sensor. It is also high precision and resolution, but since most of us do not have access to a NIST traceable temperature chamber (to convert precision to accuracy via calibration), the high accuracy is probably the most important feature. Anyway, my point is the vendor calls it a high accuracy sensor, you call it high precision, and the words have different meanings.
