Customised NTC thermistors from Variohm Eurosensor are being used in the control systems of Heat Electric’s water-filled electric radiators. Heat Electric required the thermistor to be built, tested and delivered to its exact requirements to ensure continuity of supply and maintain the relatively tight dimensions required for installation within the radiator to maximise its relative heating potential.

Heat Electric’s radiators are powered by electricity and with a self-contained mini-boiler and pump and are sold as economic replacements for storage heaters, oil-filled radiators and gas-fired water-based heating systems.

Variohm Eurosensor has worked with Heat Electric for several years and supplies customised NTC thermistors as part of the control system that includes a built-in thermostat for cost-effective controllability.

The temperature-related characteristics and accuracies for resistance values and curves as well as the response times and other parameters are often specific to the customer’s application.

This particular epoxy-coated sensor is encapsulated in a flag terminal for mounting at the top of the radiator and is connected to the control board with a special connector.

Variohm supplies a range of NTC thermistors with special mounting features and has a standard range available pre-mounted in ring terminals, hexagonal bolts or tubes. Further bespoke customisation is available for special lead wires, lengths and housing requirements in addition to connectors and terminations.
