Vishay Intertechnology Releases New Series of Micro-Chip NTC Thermistors With Small 1.6-mm Body Sensing Diameter, Fast Response Time Down to ≤ 0.7 s, and Temperature Accuracy of ± 0.5 °C from + 25 °C to + 85 °C
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Aug. 30, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of a new series
of micro-chip negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors with a very small maximum body sensing diameters of 1.6 mm,
and fast response times of ≤ 3 s in air and
≤ 0.7 s in oil. The NTCLE305E4xxxSB devices provide precise measurements over a wide temperature range, with accuracy of ± 0.5 °C from
+ 25 °C to + 85 °C and ± 1.0 °C between − 40 °C and + 125 °C.
The three thermistors released today offer designers a choice of electrical resistance values at + 25 °C (R25) to meet the self heating, voltage output, or noise suppression needs of their applications. The NTCLE305E4202SB, NTCLE305E4502SB, and NTCLE305E4103SB feature R25 of 2060 Ω, 5,000 Ω, and 10,000 Ω, respectively, with other values available on request.
AEC-Q200 qualified with exceptionally high thermal shock resistance up to 2000 cycles, the thermistors are intended for temperature sensing circuits in automotive temperature probes and control units, and industrial boilers, battery packs, and fire detectors.
The NTCLE305E4xxxSB devices consist of a micro NTC chip with two insulated solid silver-plated nickel wires that are coated with an ochre-colored epoxy lacquer. The thermistors’ flexible leads allow for easy mounting and assembly. The devices are compliant to RoHS directive 2002/95/EC, in accordance to WEEE 2002/96/EC, and fulfill ELV 2000/53/EC.
Samples and production quantities of the new NTC thermistors are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks for larger orders.
