 Chinese term or phrase: 其 若无其它规定，这里所述的数值为理论正确值。除温度界限之外，未述及最大值和最小值的数值其公差为± 5%。 (我不明白这个“其”，实际上这后半个句子对我来说好像没有什么感觉。谢谢！)

 English translation:their Explanation:“其”代表前面“数值”二字，是指除温度之外（如压力、湿度、浓度等）所有未述及上下限之参数值，故宜译为 “their”。只有在上下文明确说明该“数值”只是指一种参数值的情况下，“其”才可译为 “its”。 试译： Other than temperature limits, for all other parameters whose maximum and minimum values are not mentioned herein, their tolerance shall be ±5 %. 或： Except for temperature limits, tolerance of all other parameters, whose maximum and minimum values are not mentioned herein, shall be ±5 %.

of it

Explanation:
「最大值和最小值的数值其公差为± 5%」整体来看是指the tolerance of the numerical value between the maximum value and minimum value is ± 5%。中文的「其」在这里只是个虚字或语助词而已，并无特定意思。勉强要翻译的话可以说the numerical value of it，而it为「公差」。

Explanation:
It seems nice to me that the 其 here represents the values except those with max. and min.
