SENSORS: Selco Products’ CP Series and CS Series Thermistor Probe Assemblies can be customized to meet unique demands for specialized application requirements. These negative temperature coefficient thermistors can be modified from Selco’s standard product line or completely custom designed. With virtually unlimited options in materials, configurations, connections, lead types and lengths, these versatile packaging options provide labor savings and convenience for OEMs.
Examples of customization include adhesive backing for mounting to temperature sensitive PCB components, corrosion resistant or high pressure rated probe housings, moisture resistant assemblies, plastic over-molded assemblies, and high temperature (+220C) rated probes assemblies.
The CP Series Thermistor Probes are available in precision interchangeable accuracies from ±0.10C, ±0.20C, ±0.25C, ±0.50C, ±1.00C or point matched tolerances from ±1 percent through ±10 percent. Base resistance values at 25C can be specified from 300ohms to 1MEG Ohms. Lead customization allows for selection of lead lengths, wire gauge, and insulation options to meet the temperature or environmental requirements of the specific application.
The CS Series Epoxy Encapsulated Thermistor Probes feature precision interchangeable accuracies from ±0.10C, ±0.20C, ±0.25C, ±.50C, and ±1.00C. Point matched tolerances are also available from ±1 percent through ±10 percent. The probes may be intermittently cycled at temperatures from -50 to 150C. Optimum stability is achieved when stored at temperatures below 50C and operated continuously in temperatures below 100C.
Selco’s custom NTC Thermistors and Probes are well suited for a wide range of applications including commercial and home appliances, food processing equipment, HVAC, instrumentation and control, pool and spa control, building automation and environmental controls, medical, military, life sciences, automotive, and other thermal management controls. Typical pricing ranges from $0.50 to $10.00 each with lead times from 4 - 8 weeks for initial deliveries.
