Ametherm is the leading manufacturer of inrush current limiter (ICL) thermistors and Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) thermistors for temperature compensation and control. Established in 1994 and headquartered in Carson City, Nevada, Ametherm is globally recognized for superior thermistor engineering and temperature control solutions.
Their manufacturing facility processes raw materials such as copper, manganese, cobalt, and nickel into substrate materials that protect AC motors, power supplies, and amplifiers.
Ametherm has announced that the company has extended the capabilities of its ACCU-Curve series of interchangeable NTC thermistors with the ACL-011. This new device features insulated tinned-copper leads, ensuring the most accurate temperature sensing with no unintended conduction between leads.
Ametherm’s ACL-011 delivers long-term stability and reliability for high-accuracy temperature sensing, control, and compensation in medical, industrial, and automotive applications. The device offers interchangeability over a broad temperature range and eliminates the need to individually calibrate or provide circuit compensation for part variability.
Offering a diameter of 1.7 mm and 32 AWG leads, the epoxy-coated thermistor features resistance at 25 °C of 50 kW, with a tolerance of ± 1 %. The ACL-011 offers Beta of 3950 °K, a dissipation constant of 3 mW/°C, maximum power rating of 50 mW, and an operating temperature range of – 40 °C to + 125 °C.
Providing designers with faster, less-expensive alternatives to RTD probes and thermocouples — without compromising on accuracy, Ametherm’s 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.
