The NTCALUG02 Series of Low Thermal Gradient Lug Temperature Sensors is suitable for surface temperature sensing applications, especially when a good electrical insulation and thermal contact with the surface is required. These sensors provide highly accurate and dependable surface temperature measurement across a wide temperature range. The Low Thermal Gradient Lug Sensors incorporate a negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor with AWG30 PEEK insulated mono-stranded silver plated nickel wires mounted inside the barrel of an M3.5 (#5-#6) low profile closed lug terminal. The low profile lug terminal provides for easy mounting. The combination of the low profile lug terminal and nickel conductor provide a reduced thermal gradient. The NTCALUG02 Series is both AEC-Q200 qualified and select versions are UL recognized. In addition to the off-the-shelf version, the NTCALUG02 Series provides the designer with flexibility through electrical and mechanical customization options.
