What is a NTC Temperature Sensor?
NTC stands for “Negative Temperature Coefficient”, meaning the temperature that the sensor detects is reversely related to the sensor resistance. The higher the temperature, the temperature detected, the lower the resistance coincide. It has a semi logarithm resistance to temperature characteristics, meaning very high sensor responsiveness to temperature. During vehicle usage, the onboard ECU sends a constant voltage to the sensor. This voltage goes through the circuit loop of the sensor and feeds back the ECU a variable voltage depending on the temperature detected. NTC Temperature Sensor is generally used for just in time temperature control.
CERADEX’s NTC Temperature Sensor is made from self-formulated fine ceramic. This core element is powered formed with embedded conductor to ensure sensor high sensitivity, high durability, high temperature resistance, and high vibration resistance against the harsh environment of the vehicle’s exhaust gas environment. To uphold quality and stability, every piece of sensor manufactured undergoes strict multipoint resistance check to ensure sensor characteristic property before shipment. With 26 years of experience in the field material formulation, choose CERADEX’s NTC Temperature Sensor for your next replacement needs!
