Pearl-Shaped Precision NTC Thermistor for Temperature Measurement.
Thermistors are temperature-sensing elements made of semiconductor material that has been sintered in order to display large changes in resistance in proportion to small changes in temperature.
NTC Thermistors are non-linear resistors, which alter their resistance characteristics with temperature. The resistance of NTC will decrease as the temperature increases. The manner in which the resistance decreases is related to a constant known in the electronics industry as Beta, or B. Beta is measured in K.
The MF52 series from Cantherm is ethoxyline resin coated. The small size is made possible by new materials and manufacturing methods which provide the benefit of close tolerances and fast response.
