NTC thermistors designed to withstand high currents

Ametherm today introduced a new series of inrush current limiting NTC thermistors designed to withstand high steady-state currents from 6 A to 50 A and 250 J to 800 J of input energy in a wide range of applications. Recognized by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for ensured safety, AS Series devices provide lower current density, faster reset times, and a wider temperature range without derating compared with traditional inrush current limiters.

The thermistors released today limit inrush currents for the protection of pre-charge circuits in lithium-ion batteries; variable-frequency drives in sports equipment such as treadmills, high-speed computers, and processors; switch mode power supplies for plasma cutters and welders; and audio amplifiers, MRIs, and X-ray machines. Providing a simple one-component alternative to using power resistors with timers and relays, the AS Series reduces costs and greatly simplifies designs. 

While traditional inrush current limiters handle approximately 167 A per square inch for the duration of the inrush current, AS Series devices are designed to withstand 400 A per square inch. This lower current density, in combination with a uniform temperature gradient throughout the disc, increases reliability by eliminating hot spots from fatigue. 

The AS Series features Hot R from 0.0074 Ω to 0.380 Ω, resistance at 25 °C from .50 Ω to 50 Ω, and maximum capacitance at 680 VAC from 500 μF to 1730 μF. The devices are available with diameters of 30 mm and 36 mm.

Made in the U.S.A. and offered through Mouser, DigiKey, and Farnell, samples of the AS Series are available in three to five days. Production quantities are available with lead times of four weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $2.50 per piece.

The TPS7B69xx-Q1 high-voltage linear regulator operates over a 4-V to 40-V input voltage range. The device has an output current capability of 150 mA and offers fixed output voltages of 2.5 V (TPS7B6925-Q1), 3.3 V(TPS7B6933-Q1) or 5 V (TPS7B6950-Q1). The device features a thermal shutdown and short-circuit protection to prevent damage during over-temperature and overcurrent conditions.


The TPS7A45xx series are 1.5-A low-dropout regulators optimized for fast transient response. The devices are capable of supplying 1.5 A at a dropout voltage of 300 mV. The low operating quiescent current (1 mA) drops to less than 1 μA in shutdown. In addition to the low quiescent current, the TPS7A45xx regulators incorporate several protection features that make them ideal for use in battery-powered systems. The devices are protected against both reverse input and reverse output voltages. In battery-backup applications where the output can be held up by a backup battery when the input is pulled to ground, the TPS7A45xx acts as if it has a diode in series with its output and prevents reverse current flow.
