It needs to be noted that the Î´ value is the parameter of NTC thermistor before the secondary encapsulation by most of the manufacturers. Although the current determined by this parameter won’t produce self-thermal, but it affects the selection range of the parameter value. That’s because the max. non self-thermal power is increased after secondary encapsulation. The way to determine the current range by dissipation factor is to determine the accuracy of NTC thermistor first, and then the self-thermal power consumption allowed. For example, when the accuracy of NTC thermistor is 0.1°C, then the self-thermal temperature doesn’t exceed 0.1°C, that is to say, less than 0.1Î´ power won’t produce self-thermal power.
Other factors needed to be noted: 1. Ï„a will be increased after secondary encapsulation. 2. It needs to pay attention to the medium of the parameter since Î´ and Ï„a vary widely for the same one NTC thermistor in different media. 3. In flow air, it doesn’t influence the accuracy much that NTC thermistor produce some self-heat.
