Thermistors

Thermistors are, as the name suggests, resistors that are dependent on heat and act as temperature sensors. There are two kinds of thermistor – negative temperature coefficient (NTC), which reduces resistance as temperature increases, and positive temperature coefficient (PTC), where the resistance increases as the sensor gets warmer. TKS and ATC Semitec are among the leading manufacturers of thermistors available at Rapid.
