NTC inrush current limiters (NTC ICL) are another reliable solution for limiting inrush currents. They possess a highresistance at low temperatures (e.g. 25 °C), which Iimits the inrush currents. At higher powers, the NTC ICL is usuallybridged with a relay or triac after the inrush current peaks have decayed. The NTC ICL must be selected so thatit can carry the continuous current in the event that the relay is short-circuited.
