Thermistors for Temperature Measurement, Compensation, and Control.
Negative Temperature Coefficient NTC Thermistors are semi-conductor non-linear resistors, which alter their resistance characteristics with temperature and the resistance of the NTC thermistor will decrease as the temperature increases.
Ametherm’s NTC thermistors are manufactured from a specially-formulated high quality metal oxide ceramic material which is extremely accurate in sensing temperature used in Temperature Measurement, Compensation, and Control applications.
What Do Rt1, Rt2, t1, and t2 Have In Common? They are the main components of Thermistor Beta Calculations as it relates to temperature measurement, compensation, and control. And if you are an engineer in an industry such as automotive or HVAC where things like coolant and air intake temperatures are crucial to the safety and performance of a vehicle or unit, chances are you will deal with beta calculations … Continue Reading
Award-Winning Hyperloop Pod Uses NTC Thermistors A team of engineers use NTC thermistors in their design for a high-speed transportation pod. The thermistors accurately sense temperatures and create a map of the application’s heat. Teslarati recently conducted an interview with members of the Badgerloop team, 3rd-place winners of SpaceX’s Hyperloop Pod design competition in January. The Hyperloop is Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s “fifth mode” of transportation where passengers in a … Continue Reading
Recently, the SFGate released an article about how thermistors are used to measure temperature change in Lake Tahoe. The article states that over the past 40 years, global warming has caused the temperature of lakes to rise, affecting the natural habitat for fish species and algae blooms. Scientists at the Tahoe Environmental Research Center carefully monitor the lake’s temperature using thermistors carried by large ocean buoys. Signals from the buoys transmit data via satellite to scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in … Continue Reading
