Mini Lug NTC thermistors only require 65mm² of mounting space
In addition to their small diameter, the NTCALUG03 thermistors feature a tiny 5.5 mm ring tongue that can be mounted with M2 screws or American studs #1 to 2. These small dimensions, when combined with the devices’ silver-plated nickel conductor, result in a low thermal gradient of less than 5 % for accurate surface-temperature measurement in space-limited applications.
The devices are optimized for housing, heat-sink, power electronics, and pipe and conductor thermal management in test and measurement equipment, appliances, and industrial equipment.
The thermistors released today offer designers a choice of electrical resistance values at + 25 °C (R25) to meet the self-heating, voltage output, or noise suppression needs of their applications. The NTCALUG03 devices feature R25 of 10, 12 or 47kΩ, with tolerances of ± 2 % and ± 3 %.
The thermistors are available with an optional 1.5 mm pitch ZHR-2 connector, and they offer customizable lead lengths and screw sizes, such as M3 / American stud #3 to 4. The NTCALUG03 series is compliant to RoHS directive 2002/95/EC.
