Ametherm's SURGE-GARD(TM) Line of NTC Inrush Current Limiting Thermistors Now in Stock at Digi-Key

CARSON CITY, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Ametherm today announced that global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation is now stocking the company's SURGE-GARD™ series of NTC inrush current limiting thermistors, which Ametherm acquired from RTI Electronics in 2013. The components are available worldwide via Digi-Key's website, www.digikey.com.

Manufactured in Ametherm's Carson City, Nevada, facility, SURGE-GARD series devices, available from Digi-Key, are capable of handling high steady-state currents to 36 A and input energy to 250 J. Available in multiple leaded package options with maximum diameters from 7.6 mm to 31.75 mm, the components offer resistance at +25 degrees C (R25) from 0.4 to 220 ohms with tolerances down to 10%, maximum operating voltage to 265 VRMS, and beta from 3000 degrees K to 3965 degrees K.

Constructed of specially formulated metal oxide ceramic materials, RoHS-2- and REACH-compliant SURGE-GARD thermistors are optimized for a wide variety of applications that require inrush current limiting to reduce noise and circuit failure -- including switching power supplies, AC motors, motor drives, audio amplifiers, and battery chargers. In these applications, the devices lower rectifier costs by reducing the required peak forward-surge-current rating.

"The SURGE-GARD series has delivered reliable circuit protection to the electronics industry for over forty years, and we are excited to see that tradition continue with Ametherm," said Tom Busher, vice president, global IP&E of Digi-Key.

"Digi-Key has earned a worldwide reputation as the go-to source for electronic components, and we are proud to have the company stocking our SURGE-GARD line," said Mehdi Samii, vice president of engineering at Ametherm. "Over the years, the industry has come to rely on these thermistors for unmatched circuit protection, and we will continue to manufacture them with the same metal oxide mixtures that have produced the high-quality that Digi-Key's customers have come to expect."

Samples and production quantities of the SURGE-GARD line are available now, with lead times of five weeks for large orders.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
