I am using a silicon diode and have the standard curve assigned to the input, however, my room temperature reading is off by 20 K. What is the cause of this?
You most likely have selected the wrong standard curve. Most Lake Shore temperature instruments have both the DT-470 (Curve 10) and the DT-670 standard curves included. At room temperature, the sensor value will show an approximate 20 K difference if the wrong curve is selected.
