The typical characteristic of thermistors is that they are sensitive to temperature and exhibit different resistance values at different temperatures. The positive temperature coefficient thermistor (PTC) has a larger resistance value when the temperature is higher, and the negative temperature coefficient thermistor (NTC) has a lower resistance value when the temperature is higher. They are both semiconductor devices. So why is the thermistor also called a temperature-controlled thermistor?
A temperature-controlled thermistor is actually a thermistor, which is an electronic component that is sensitive to temperature. The main function of the thermistor is to control temperature. So what are the applications of temperature control thermistors?
Unlike resistance thermometers that use pure metal, the materials used in thermistors are usually ceramics or polymers. Thermistors usually achieve high accuracy in a limited temperature range, usually -90℃~130℃. Thermistors can be used in temperature control circuits. In fact, refrigerators with electronic thermostats use thermistors. Many household appliances now contain thermistors. The existence of this component is to control its temperature, which can avoid damage to the electrical appliance due to unsuitable temperature, so as to achieve the function of protection.
In addition to being used in electrical appliances, temperature-controlled thermistors are also used in many electrical equipment.
