Temperature monitoring with PTC-thermistors

 - Basic information

PTC thermistors are ceramic semi-conductors which because of the very high Positive Temperature Coefficient lend themselves to a variety of applications.

- Applications

Specially constructed versions of these products are available and this facility enables most applications to be catered for. Most typical application for PTC thermistors is to protect the windings of heavy duty motors and transformers.

Technical characteristics

-PTC PTC resistance for motor and machine protection.
-They are special ceramic resistors.
