Terms and Concepts of Thermistors


To learn about thermistors, a familiarization with the terms frequently used to describe their uses and functions is essential. These are a few of the terms you're likely to encounter when shopping for thermistors:

  • Temperature-wattage characteristic

    This characteristic refers to the relationship between the thermistor's temperature and the stable state wattage at a specified ambient temperature.
  • Current-time characteristic

    At an indicated ambient temperature, this characteristic is the relationship between the thermistor going through a current and time when the voltage is introduced or interrupted.
  • Standard Reference Temperature

    Twenty five degrees Celsius (or 77 degrees Fahrenheit) is the thermistor's temperature when the zero power resistance is nominal.
  • Thermal Time Constant

    When a thermistor changes 63.2% of the difference between its initial and final body temperature owing to a step function change in temperature under a zero-power situation, the thermal time constant is required.
  • Maximum Operating Temperature (or Maximum Power Rating)

    This is the thermistor's maximum body temperature under which it will continue to operate during a prolonged period without compromising its stability characteristics. Internal or external heat or both could generate this temperature, but it should not go beyond the maximum value indicated.
  • Zero Power Resistance

    This refers to a thermistor's resistance value (dc). It is measured under a specific temperature when the thermistor's dissipation of power is sufficiently low. An additional decrease in power will be equal to not more than 0.1% in resistance change (or 1/10 of the tolerance, whichever is smaller).
  • NTC

    This acronym stands for "negative temperature coefficient." This is a type of thermistor that exhibits a decrease in zero-power resistance when the thermistor's temperature goes up.
  • PTC

    PTC means "positive temperature coefficient" and a PTC thermistor is the opposite of an NTC thermistor in that its zero-power resistance rises as its body temperature rises.
  • Stability

    Thermistors are usually subjected to a variety of testing conditions. When they are able to maintain certain characteristics or qualities after testing methods are applied, they are considered stable.
  • Maximum Steady State Current

    This term is used in the case of power thermistors. It is the continuous and stable state current through which the thermistor is capable of passing. The current could be DC or RMS AC. The maximum steady state current for some thermistors is assumed at a maximum operating ambient temperature of 65 degrees Celsius. It is possible to have a higher temperature than 65 degrees and in this case, thermistors can be designed "to spec."
  • Dissipation Constant

    This is the ratio of the change in a thermistor's power dissipation to the change in its body temperature under a specific ambient temperature. This ratio is usually expressed in milliwatts per Celsius degree.
  • Maximum Power Rating

    When a thermistor dissipates over a prolonged time, its maximum power rating is that in which its acceptable stability characteristics will NOT be affected.
