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.
NTC thermistor temperature sensors are a key component in Li-Ion battery charging and safety. They provide critical temperature data required to keep the Li-Ion battery in the optimum condition during the charging cycle. Careful management of temperature during charging prolongs battery life and avoids hazards inherent to Li-Ion batteries. Li-Ion Batteries Power Green Energy Due to their light weight and high energy density, Li-Ion batteries are used exclusively in consumer electronics. Li-Ion batteries … Continue Reading
We’ve made a discovery and wanted to share it with you; introducing the Arduino Uno. If you’re an electronics geek who’s been wanting to learn more about the vast community of “Hardware Hackers” out there, read on! We discovered that you could hack together some awesome stuff with an Arduino Uno and other electrical components such as thermistor temperature sensors. And when you combine the Arduino and thermistors the possibilities are endless. We … Continue Reading
A New Application Thermistors are expanding in their applications every day. This year, EVGA, an American computer hardware company, redesigned its leading cooler to better monitor and cool power components in addition to the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) component. In order to accomplish this, EVGA introduced Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) thermistors to its Printed Circuit Board (PCB). These NTC thermistors express large decreases in resistance in response to small increases … Continue Reading
