Riedon introduced three product lines, leveraging its precision-resistor IP to simplify thermal sensing and monitoring. The products include miniature self-controlled heaters and resistance temperature detectors (RTDs).
The PTC series of miniature heaters are positive-temperature-coefficient devices that stabilize quickly at 100°C-125°C depending on voltage and power rating. The PTC’s compact 9mm-high aluminum housing has a flat surface for easy attachment and comes with 200mm wire terminations. Two sizes are offered, including 20mm x 40mm PTCA devices for 12V/10W and 24V/20W operation and 40mm x 40mm PTCB at 24V/20W and 80-230V/20W.
RTDW wirewound temperature detectors are 0.26” x 0.125” RTDs in a choice of radial and axial leaded packages, with positive temperature coefficients from 1100ppm/°C to 6000ppm/°C for temperature measurement and compensation. Standard resistance values are 100Ω, 500Ω, and 1KΩ, in tolerances to ±0.005 percent. Riedon can also create custom temperature coefficients, packages, and resistances to special order.
The RTDS series are surface-mounted platinum temperature detectors compliant with DIN/EN 60751 in standard AA, A, and B classes for tolerance and temperature range. With a TCR of 3850ppm/°C, these devices combine fast-acting and accurately measurable response, including t0.5 times from 0.1s to 3.3s, with dependable linearity and long-term stability. The halogen-free 0805 and 1206 SMD chip packages allow safe use where flammability is a risk. Standard nominal resistance values are 100Ω, 500Ω, and 1KΩ for measurement current from 1.0mA to 7.0mA. Custom resistances are available to special order.
