WELCOME TO THE NTC THERMISTOR CURVE COMPUTATION PROGRAMS OF VISHAY
If you want to compute a resistance temperature curve for a well defined Vishay NTC thermistor part number, you can use our online NTC RT Calculation Tool with options to have a pdf print-out or a csv export file of the selected part number.
You can also download our Excel® VBA program from the MY VISHAY NTC CURVE page. For most of the Vishay NTC thermistor part numbers, the "My Vishay NTC Curve" program will provide you with an Excel® spreadsheet of the resistance value vs. Temperature, with flexible temperature steps, limits and units. If you prefer to explore the electrical capability of VISHAY NTC thermistors based on the different mechanical executions, you can download one or several programs hereunder.
The principles of these programs are the following:
1) First, select a component type:
- Epoxy-coated leaded
- Surface-mount (SMD) and then case size (0402, 0603, 0805: the curves are different)
- Glass-encapsulated housing (leaded diode package and SMD MELF type have identical curves)
- NTC ceramic chips, NTC assemblies, NTC leaded with B3984 K low tolerance
2) Choose either the degree Fahrenheit (°F) or degree Celsius (°C) temperature scale.
3) Click on the desired links below.
4) Once you are in a particular program, follow the user mode detailed in the first sheet: "user mode".
Each Excel® file has 2 sheets: a "user mode" and an "RTCOEF" sheet with the computed table.
You will need to input the reference resistance value and tolerance for a given reference temperature:
The standard values and the ranges to choose from are shown in table 1 in the sheet "user mode".
You will also need to input a B25/85 value, which must be chosen from table 1.
For epoxy leaded types, the Ref. Temp. can be selected between -55 °C and 150 °C (-67 °F to 302 °F).
If you need the standard R(T) curve, just type 25 °C (77 °F) as the reference temperature.
For epoxy types, the Ref. resistance value can be selected depending on the chosen B25/85 value.
If standard curves are needed, you must choose one of the R @ 25 °C (77 °F) existing values in table 1.
For SMD and glass-encapsulated types, the reference temperature is fixed at 25 °C (77 °F) and the reference resistance values are fixed depending on the chosen B25/85 value.
It is not possible to type values not shown in table 1.
For SMD and glass-encapsulated types, the standard P/N and 12NC will also be indicated.
