The Vishay NTCAIMME3 miniature immersion sensor for fluid-temperature sensing combines a number of features that allow a long service life, versatile mounting options, and accurate temperature measurement.
The NTCAIMME3 consists of an NTC thermistor chip mounted in a stainlesssteel housing, which allows the sensor to remain in permanent contact with the monitored fluid.
The tip of the sensor is small, with a diameter of only 2.0mm, which allows fast and accurate sensing of the fluid temperature. Typical response time is 1.5 seconds. In addition, the electrical connection is made through twin PVCinsulated AWG #30 lead. wires, which impose minimal heat loss helping to promote sensing accuracy and precision. Together, the small tip size and thin-gauge wire help to achieve overall thermal gradient of less than 0.02K/K.
The NTCAIMME3 is available with a brass collar for applications that require a sealed mounting. An alternative version without the collar is also available, and is suitable for custom mounting. The end wire is suitable for soldered or crimped termination, and equipment designers can also choose the option of a connector for wire-to-wire or wireto- board connection.
