CARSON CITY, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Ametherm today announced that the company will be showcasing a wide variety of its latest NTC thermistors for high-accuracy temperature measurement, compensation, and control at the 2014 Sensors Expo & Conference, taking place June 24-26 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. Highlighted products will include disc, chip, and surface-mount devices, in addition to NTC thermistor probe assemblies, for a wide range of applications.
In booth 323, Ametherm will be displaying products from its new KR series of NTC surface-mount thermistors. Offered in standard EIA 0805, 1005, and 1206 case sizes, KR series devices feature dissipation constants of 2 mW/ degrees C, maximum power ratings to 250 mW at 25 degrees C, and high-temperature operation to +150 degrees C. With resistance at 25 degrees C from 100 ohms to 150 kilohms and tight tolerances of 5 % and 10 %, the devices provide high stability and reliability for applications such as LCD controls and power transistor stabilization.
For maximum sensitivity in fan motor controls, fluid levels, and temperature sensors, Ametherm will exhibit NTC disc and chip thermistors with precision tolerances to 1 %, high-temperature operation to +150 degrees C, and thermal time constants down to 2 s. Available with diameters from 2.54 mm to 12.7 mm, Ametherm's NTC disc thermistors feature resistance at 25 degrees C from 4 ohms to 150 kilohms. Measuring 1.27 mm by 1.27 mm with profiles from 0.5 mm to 3.8 mm, the company's NTC chip thermistors offer resistance at 25 degrees C from 100 ohms to 500 kilohms.
Ideal for temperature monitoring in hybrid circuits for ICs in robotic assemblies and military telecom systems, Ametherm's STC0134-X, STC0138-X, STC0143-X, and STC0144-X series of NTC chip thermistors will also be on display. Available in sizes as small as 0.50 mm by 0.50 mm by 0.43 mm, the devices feature resistance at 25 degrees C from 100 ohms to 5 kilohms and tolerances down to 5 %. The thermistors' electrode surface is available in gold to prevent oxidation.
In addition, Ametherm will be highlighting a variety of NTC thermistor probe assembly types for high-accuracy temperature sensing in transformers, electric motors, air sensors, and HVAC systems. The devices feature resistance at 25 degrees C from 0.5 ohms to 250 ohms, beta from 3,500 K to 4,500 K, a dissipation constant of 3 mW/ degrees C, a thermal time constant down to 10 s, and max power of 125 mW.
Since 1986, Sensors Expo & Conference has been the leading industry event in North America, focusing exclusively on sensors and sensor-related systems. More information on the exposition and conference is available at http://www.sensorsmag.com/sensors-expo.

Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy. However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn’t have to negat...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service. In his session at 19th Cloud Exp...
