Sensors Expo 2018: Thermistor Probe Assembly Eases Battery-Terminal Mounting

While at Sensors Expo 2018 in San Jose, CA, booth #1516, Ametherm introduced a new NTC thermistor probe assembly for high-accuracy temperature sensing and measurement in Li-ion battery power applications. The device combines a specially designed ring lug for battery mounting with a high dielectric voltage rating of 4000 VAC.

 

The company’s NTC thermistors are manufactured from a specially formulated metal oxide ceramic material that is extremely accurate in sensing temperature. The PANR 103395-342 probe assembly released today utilizes this same material while offering a half-inch stud-insulated ring lug that enables easy and secure mounting to Li-ion battery terminals. The device is ideal for electric vehicle (EV) batteries, off-grid energy storage, and alternative energy applications.
