NTC thermistor temperature characteristics
Thermistor with negative temperature coefficient is called NTC thermistor. NTC thermistor is made of such metal oxide materials as manganese, cobalt, nickel and copper, etc., with semiconductor. NTC thermistor has compact size, resistance and temperature characteristics with small fluctuations, etc. As NTC thermistor has fast response to all kinds of temperature changes, it can be used to realize high sensitivity and high precision detection.
Some thermistor with positive temperature coefficient is not suitable for applications in practical situation because with the increase of temperature, its resistance will increase, which can lead to signal distortion. With temperature increasing, NTC thermistor resistance will decrease. So in order to make the element resistance remained in a wide temperature range, NTC can be used for temperature compensation.
There are various NTC thermistors in our company (ATI). NTC thermistor released by us has high reliability and stability, high accuracy and some other advantages, which can used to measure laser diode, optical element, etc. What’s more, it can also be utilized to control temperature of TEC controller and driver. As NTC thermistor has glass wrapping, it has low drift.
