CARSON CITY, Nev. — Oct. 11, 2016 — Ametherm today announced that its ACCU-Curve interchangeable NTC thermistors are now being stocked by its valued distributor Digi-Key Electronics. The components are available worldwide via Digi-Key’s online catalog at www.digikey.com.

Ametherm’s ACCU-Curve NTC thermistors deliver long-term stability and reliability for high-accuracy temperature sensing, control, and compensation in medical, industrial, and automotive applications. The devices offer interchangeability over a broad temperature range and eliminate the need to individually calibrate or provide circuit compensation for part variability.

Offering diameters of 2.4 mm and 32 AWG tinned-copper leads, the epoxy-coated devices are available in four resistance values at 25 °C — 2.252 kΩ, 10 kΩ, 30 kΩ, 100 kΩ — with tight tolerances of ± 0.2 °C between 0 °C and 70 °C. The thermistors feature a dissipation constant of 1 mW/°C and thermal time constant of 10 s.

“Our ACCU-Curve series NTC thermistors provide designers with faster, less-expensive alternatives to RTD probes and thermocouples — without compromising on accuracy,” said Mehdi Samii, vice president of engineering at Ametherm. “We are proud to make these benefits available to Digi-Key’s customers.”

ACCU-Curve series 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.
