Miniature immersion sensor for fast fluid temperature sensing

The Vishay BCcomponents NTCAIMME3 has a stainless steel housing for permanent contact with fluids and provides a response time of 1.5 secons, a low thermal gradient of < 0.02 K/K, and high base temperature accuracy of ± 1.5 °C.

The device consists of an NTC thermistor chip mounted in its stainless steel housing with twin PVC-insulated AWG #30 lead wire connections. The sensor features a small tip with a 2.0 mm diameter, which allows temperature sensing with little heat loss through the connecting wires. The device is available with a brass collar for sealed mounting, or without a collar for custom mounting.

The NTCAIMME3 is suitable for a range of applications, including liquid processing equipment, water boilers, chiller systems, water and oil tanks, consumer and industrial appliances, medical fluid circulators, and solar heating systems.
