List of unit ids in the SDSComXml 4.0 format. Each unit belongs to a unit set. For example, the unit id 10001 represents "Celsius degrees (C)" in the unit set "Temperature". If your datasheet utilizes a unit not found, you can propose the unit and get a unit id immediately. The unit will have status "Proposed". The Xml committee can update it to "OK" or "Rejected". A unit id is unique independently of which unit set it belongs to. In the Xml file, the unit id should be specified as <Unit UnitSetId=1001 UnitId=10001>C</Unit>. There is no need to interpret textual abbreviations like "C", "c", "Cel.", etc., but they should be included for human readability and quality control.
 
Unit ids and unit set ids are fixed, but the unit abbreviations are available in selectable languages. A unit shown in parentheses means that it is not yet translated to the selected language. Select unit language:
