Panasonic Automotive and Industrial Systems Europe has released a new series of automotive grade NTC thermistors using a highly reliable multilayer / monolithic structure for use in harsh automotive, transportation and heavy equipment applications.
The surface-mount ERTJ-M series components feature a wide operating temperature range from -40C up to +150C. An integrated isolating layer minimises changing resistance value the reflow and external environmental influences.
The cost-effective thermistors are available in small 0402 and 0603 case sizes for greater application coverage. Fully AEC-Q 200 and RoHS compliant, the products are completely lead-free and environmentally-friendly.
“Our new NTC thermistors are ideal for use in many automotive applications where there are any concerns about temperature or there is a need to detect abnormal heating,” remarked Satoshi Endo, product manager at Panasonic.
