Thermistor deliers battery pack and power supply temperature detection

Thermistor deliers battery pack and power supply temperature detection

Murata has launched the NXRT series of radial leaded NTC thermistors.

Utilising the company's NCP15 series chip thermistor within an epoxy resin, the new range is available with the nominal resistance values of 2, 10, 33, 47 or 100kohm at 25°C.

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 50°C, the temperature detection sensitivity deviation is said to be within +/-0.6°C, and is within +/- 1.4°C at 100°C.

The series is suitable for a range of consumer electronics and domestic electrical appliances, and particularly suited to measuring the temperature of a power supply circuit or battery.

The thermistor package measures 4.0 x 2.0 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 - 40 to 125°C.
