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.
Interchangeable Device Eliminates Conduction Between Leads for the Highest Temperature Sensing Accuracy Ametherm today (April 9 2018) announced that the company has extended the capabilities of its ACCU-Curve series of interchangeable NTC thermistors with the ACL-011. This new device features insulated tinned-copper leads, ensuring the most accurate temperature sensing with no unintended conduction between leads. Ametherm’s ACL-011 delivers long-term stability and reliability for high-accuracy temperature sensing, control, and compensation in … Continue Reading
From the creation of the first inrush current limiter series, back in 1994, Ametherm knew that having logic behind the series naming convention would be important. Not only for organizational means but also to easily identify the components of the inrush current limiters and NTC thermistor temperature sensors. Both product lines, the inrush current limiters and NTC thermistor temperature sensors, have stringent guidelines created to get the most accurate description … Continue Reading
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
