Murata – Highly-sensitive thermistor for battery-pack and power supply temperature detectionSep 20 2012 - Passives [More Passives Articles]
Murata has announced the highly accurate NXRT series of radial-leaded NTC thermistors. Utilizing Murata’s highly accurate NCP15 series chip thermistor within an epoxy resin, the NXRT series is available with the nominal resistance values of 2k, 10k, 33k, 47k or 100kohm at 25C. Nominal resistance accuracy is typically in the range of +/-1% to 5%. Measurement sensitivity is believed to be the best available within the industry. At +50C the temperature detection sensitivity deviation is within +/-0.6C, and is within +/-1.4C at 100C.
The low-cost NXRT series is ideal for accurate temperature detection in a wide range of consumer electronics and domestic electrical appliances. The thermistor is particularly suited to measuring the temperature of a power supply circuit or battery.
The thermistor package measures 4mm x 2mm x 40mm in total including the 0.4mm diameter radial leads. The NXRT series is suitable for use in most environments and has an operating temperature range from -40C to + 125C, says the company.More news from Murata
