Positive Temperature Coefficient thermistors are truly remark-
able for their ability to function as self-regulating heating
elements. They can operate at a nearly constant temperature
over a broad range of voltage and dissipation conditions. PTC
heaters can be manufactured in many different configura-
tions. These include discs, rectangles, squares, cylinders, and
various shapes with holes to increase surface area. Multiple
PTCs can be used in parallel to provide constant heating
over a larger area.
Features:
No thermostat needed • Very low cost
Virtually unlimited life No electrical noise
No moving parts to wear
