TDK-EPC, a group company of TDK Corporation, announces a browser-based NTC R/T Calculation 5.0 tool for calculating the R/T characteristics of EPCOS NT thermistors. The download and installation of special software are no longer necessary, and users always have access to the current EPCOS product database. R/T characteristics can be individually calculated and manipulated by adjusting the temperature range and the resistance tolerance and selecting the desired temperature intervals. The characteristics can be custom designed and fine tuned using a filter function. Results can be output as PDF files or exported in spreadsheet-compatible csv format.
The tool’s product database covers the current portfolio of EPCOS NTC thermistors. In the product selection process users can now tell which EPCOS products are not recommended for new designs. A help option integrated in the tool explains its operation and functions.
The new tool can be accessed via the link www.epcos.com/ntcrt.
