Thermistors and Other Sensors

A thermistor is an electrical resistor. Heating significantly reduces the resistance of the device. It is also used for measurement and control. There are several different types of thermistors and sensors in the market to choose from.

Precision Thermistor Elements are one type of thermistors. They provide high stability and are available with 0.1°C and 0.2°C Interchangeability. These types of thermistors are chemically stable. They are not affected by aging or exposure to active fields of hard nuclear radiation. Precision Thermistor Elements can be manufactured with several different types of metals including nickel, manganese, iron, cobalt, magnesium, and titanium.


Thermistors are also available in a glass-encapsulated variety. These thermistors offer excellent long-term stability. Glass Encapsulated Thermistors can withstand higher temperatures than other thermistors. They come with a maximum continuous temperature rating of -80 to 200°C. 

Laboratory sensors are a special type of thermistor. They are specialty thermistors designed to meet your precise measuring application requirements.

There are a series of Linear Thermistor Sensors that are perfect for air temperature measurements. These sensors are equipped with two thermistor elements. When they are used with a resistor set, they will provide linearized resistance output over a particular temperature range.

Precision Thermistor Sensors are another series of thermistors that are designed for air temperature measure. These work exceptionally well when measuring air temperatures in laboratories and laminar flow systems.
