Increased demand for NTC thermistors in Japan
According to related reports, the market sales of Japanese thermistors are expected to reach 47.8 billion yen, and its market sales are expected to reach 3.5 billion. The main reason for the increase in the market demand for Japan's thermistor products is due to the benign growth in the global mobile phone market demand this year. In addition, due to the substantial increase in the production of white goods, air conditioners and mobile phones in China The market demand for varistor products has also expanded.
Thermistors can be divided into two types, one is an NTC (negative characteristic) thermistor whose resistance value decreases as the temperature rises; the other is a PTC (negative characteristic) thermistor whose resistance value increases as the temperature rises positive characteristic) thermistor.
NTC thermistor products have a wide range of applications. NTC thermistors are used in everything from air conditioners and heating equipment equipped with blowers to electric ovens, rice cookers, and more. Now, the application field of NTC thermistor has expanded. NTC thermistors are also used in fields such as dishwashers (with drying function), food processors, OA products (copiers and printers), and products that manage and control the exhaust temperature, water temperature, and oil temperature of automobiles.
One of the characteristics of PTC thermistor is that it can automatically save its own temperature after the temperature and resistance value rise to a certain level. PTC thermistors are mainly used in hair dryer products and to control the current passing through the degaussing coils of picture tubes.
Japan's nichicon company recently launched a new PTC thermistor for degaussing. The size of this new product is Φ16mm～Φ20mm, its resistance value is 3.3Ω～47Ω, and it can be used for various starting methods. So far, this new product can be said to be the small
