NTC is an acronym for Negative Temperature Coefficient. TE Connectivity (TE) is a leading designer and manufacturer of high precision discrete NTC thermistors, probes, and assemblies. An NTC thermistor is a temperature sensor that uses the resistance properties of ceramic/metal composites to measure the temperature. Our full spectrum NTC sensors offer many advantages in temperature sensing including miniature size, excellent long-term stability, high accuracy and precision.
NTC Thermistor Applications
NTC thermistors are used in a wide variety of applications. The medical industry relies on NTC's in various applications including catheters, dialysis equipment, and patient monitoring. Appliances from dryers to coffee makers use NTC thermistors to accurately measure temperature. HVAC and refrigeration equipment use NTC sensors to measure temperature in building controls and processes, resulting in increased efficiency and control. Automotive and aerospace industries use NTC thermistors for test and measurement as well as production applications.
