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.
These 5 thermistor sensor considerations will make selecting the right NTC thermistor easy Selecting a thermistor temperature sensor can be confusing, and you have a lot of options to choose from. You don’t want to risk equipment failure or circuit breaker short-outs. So, how do you make the right selection without sacrificing performance and giving up quality? See what the 5 thermistor sensor considerations are all about to find out! … Continue Reading
Application Overview Ametherm’s DG series glass-encapsulated thermistors provide long-term stability and reliability for high-accuracy temperature sensing in automotive and industrial applications. Hermetically sealed, the thermistors eliminate errors in resistance readings due to moisture penetration, while offering high operating temperatures and a compact size. DG Series Application Benefits Provide faster, more-accurate, and less-expensive alternatives to thermocouples and RTD probes Free from limitations due to solder temperature, which enables them to offer … Continue Reading
The Relationship between Thermal Time Constant and Temperature Sensors In this article, we’ll break down the relationship between the thermal time constant and NTC thermistors. We’ll also cover the importance of selecting the right thermistor with characteristics that will produce the correct thermal time constant for your application. Further down in this article, we demonstrate one way to measure thermal time constant; running two tests, then present the results. What is Thermal … Continue Reading
