A wide range of applications coupled with low costs and high accuracy make NKT NTC thermistors a frequently used device. The applications performed by these devices allows for thermistors to function as accurately as they do. NKT NTC Thermistors are used in a wide range of different industries that require high accuracy when it comes to temperature. Some of the applications include:
Temperature compensation: considering that temperatures fluctuate as a result of their environment, NTC thermistors are able to compensate for changes to keep temperature where it needs to be. Examples of circuits that might require compensation are, LCD displays, charging batteries, oscillators, HVAC( Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and refrigeration equipment
Inrush current limiting: not only is a NTC thermistor subject to a change in temperature, but it is also susceptible to changes in power. When there are changes in power, a NTC thermistor experiences a time lag prior reaching lower resistance. The time lag is utilized to help limit the inrush surge currents. It used for medical industry including catheters, dialysis equipment, and patient monitoring.
Temperature measurement: If low cost, longevity, and accuracy are important qualities, a NTC thermistor is the best option. For the operating of dryers, coffee devices. Automotive and aerospace industries use NKT NTC thermistors for test and measurement as well as production applications
Fluid level gauging: A thermistor will be able to sense an absence or presence of a liquid. It is able to do this through measuring the difference between dissipation constants (between a gas and a liquid).
