CARSON CITY, Nev. — Feb. 15, 2017 — Today, Ametherm introduced a new series of thermistors called DG Glass Encapsulated Thermistors. They provide long-term stability and reliability for high-accuracy temperature sensing in automotive and industrial applications.
Hermetically sealed, DG Glass Encapsulated Thermistors eliminate errors in resistance readings due to moisture penetration, while offering high operating temperatures and a compact size. The devices that were released today provide designers with faster, more accurate, and less-expensive alternatives to thermocouples and RTD probes.
The DG series devices are free from limitations due to solder temperature, which enables them to offer users a wide operating temperature range of -55 °C to +200 °C. With diameters of only 1.5 mm, the devices’ small size allows for encapsulation in a variety of housings, such as ring lugs and hex nuts.
The DG series of thermistors are available in four resistance values at 25 °C — 10 kΩ, 40 kΩ, 50 kΩ, and 100 kΩ — with tolerances down to ± 2 %, a dissipation constant of 3.0 mW/°C, and thermal time constant of 6 s. The devices provide TCRs of –3.9%/°C, -4.40 %/°C, and -4.75 %/°C; beta values of 3500 °K, 3950 °K, and 4200 °K; and 32 AWG dumet wire leads.
The DG glass encapsulated thermistors are available direct or through distributors such as Digi-Key and Mouser. Samples and production quantities of the deliveries are available now, with factory lead times of six to eight weeks. Volume Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $0.41 per piece.
