Thermistor has insulated tinned-copper leads to eliminate conduction
Ametherm has added the ACL-011 to its ACCU-Curve series of interchangeable NTC thermistors. It features insulated tinned-copper leads, ensuring the most accurate temperature sensing with no unintended conduction between leads, says Ametherm.
The ACL-011 delivers long-term stability and reliability for high-accuracy temperature sensing, control, and compensation in medical, industrial, and automotive applications. It offers interchangeability over a broad temperature range and eliminates the need to individually calibrate or provide circuit compensation for part variability, adds Ametherm.
The epoxy-coated thermistor has a diameter of 1.524mm and 32 AWG leads, and resistance of 25 degree C of 50-kOhm, with a tolerance of ± one per cent. The ACL-011 offers Beta of 3950 degree K, a dissipation constant of 3mW/ degree C, maximum power rating of 50mW, and an operating temperature range of – 40 to +125°C.
According to Ametherm, the ACL-011 thermistors provide designers with faster, less-expensive alternatives to RTD probes and thermocouples without compromising on accuracy. The ACCU-Curve thermistors deliver the tight tolerances required for accurate temperature measurement in critical medical instrumentation and can be potted in a variety of housings for temperature compensation circuits in industrial and automotive applications.
The ACL-011 is available direct or through distributors Digi-Key and Mouser. Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of 12 weeks for large orders.
Ametherm is headquartered in Nevada, USA. It was founded in 1994 and specialises in thermistors for temperature sensing and inrush current limiting in industrial, automotive, avionics, military, and space markets. Ametherm’s devices are some of the highest rated in the industry and are available in customised versions to meet the needs of specific applications.
