QTI Engineering compares the two equations typically used to interpolate the resistance vs. temperature characteristic of NTC thermistors: the Beta Equation and the Steinhart-Hart Equation.
Have questions about negative temperature coefficient thermistors? In this white paper, QTI engineer Gregg Lavenuta gives an overview of the general properties and features of NTC thermistors.
This white paper explains how to calculate thermistor drift over time when exposed to temperatures above 100°C, and features the results of testing the QTI T150 line for drift in high-temperature environments.
Thermal shock is one of the primary sources of temperature sensor failure in HVAC/R environments. QTI Engineering explains their semi-automated thermal shock testing system and shares the results of tests on QTIP68 and QTSSP temperature sensors from QTI and competitors.
QTI Engineering put QTIP68 probes to the test in a refrigeration environment (consisting of repeated cool and defrost cycles) and recorded the performance characteristics over time. They also tested a competitor’s IP68-rated sensor and documented probe response times.
This guide walks you through creating an analog-digital converter, and includes code to create a resistance/temperature lookup table in BASIC script.
Chip thermistors can sometimes be damaged or lost when the waffle pack containing them is opened or closed. This guide gives tips on how to safely handle the waffle pack and thermistors.
