Thermistors are temperature- sensing elements. They are made up of semiconductor material and are largely used in electrical parts and electronic items. The materials used in thermistors manufacturing are capable of indicating large changes in resistance in proportion to small changes in temperature. Thus thermistors are regarded as highly incredible tool to measure accurate drop and rise in temperature. The sensitive materials used can measure even the slightest change in resistance and temperature.
NTC Thermistors are non-linear resistors. They are radial leaded discs or similarly assembled in order to provide high performance with durable result. The resistance of this kind of thermistor decreases as there is a rise in temperature. The resistance through the thermistor can be measured by passing small and measured direct current, which also predicts drop in the voltage. Significant uses of NTC thermistors can be as follows:
NTC thermistors are generally designed to protect other electronic components from a high and sudden inflow of current.
These high performance NTC thermistors are known to work well with devices like TEC controllers, and TEC modules.
NTC thermistors are designed in a way so that it is capable of building a high stability low drift temperature control system.
The NTC thermistors are mainly glass coated, which make them the most sensitive, precise and low drift sensors.
NTC thermistors have proven to be extremely reliable and inexpensive.
NTC thermistors are essential and their presence is critical for the protection of electronic components within any product that has a circuit.
The selection of NTC thermistor should be dependent upon the application of the gadget and maximum continuous current that results due to voltage. The range of thermistors available with Analog Technologies is made out of good quality material and can be efficiently used for your daily requirement.
