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.
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
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
