PART FINDER FRIDAY – Thermistors

-1

PART FINDER FRIDAY – Thermistors! We were looking up some 10K thermistors and found these lug-attached bead thermistors. These seem like they’d be great for measuring surface temperatures, just thread them thru a small machine screw for semi-permanent attachment. The sensor is dunked in epoxy so its fairly weatherproof (but not meant for measuring liquid temperatures)…

  1. Neat! I’ve seen these in teleco DC systems. They screw them on a battery terminal in the battery string for temperature compensation in the charger. I figured the rectifier, DC power systems manufactures built them.
