    Hi everyone :cool:

    The resistance of a NTC thermistor decreases gradually as the temperature increases.

    The resistance of a PTC thermistor decreases slightly as the temperature increases, but then it increases dramatically at a certain threshold.

    I would like to know...
    Is there a thermistor that has a fairly constant (decreases or increases only slightly) resistance up to a certain threshold (around 100 degrees preferably), and then DECREASES dramatically. (See attachement)

    Regards,
    Dollarday

    I don't believe there is. Why do you need that particular response?
