IEC 60738-1 pdf download – Thermistors – Directly heated positive temperature coefficient – Part 1: Generic specification
1 scope
This part of lEC 60738 describes terms and methods of test for positive step-functiontemperature coefficient thermistors,insulated and non-insulated types typically made fromferro-electric semi-conductor materials.
lt establishes standard terms,inspection procedures and methods of test for use in detailspecifications for Qualification Approval and for Quality Assessment Systems for electroniccomponents.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
group of components having similar design features and the similarity of whose manufacturingtechniques enables them to be grouped together either for qualification approval or for qualityconformance inspection
They are generally covered by a single detail specification
variation within a type having specific nominal dimensions and characteristics
thermally sensitive semiconducting resistor which exhibits a significant change in electricalresistance with a change in body temperature
positive temperature coefficient thermistor
thermistor,the resistance of which increases with its increasing temperature throughout theuseful part of its characteristic
positive step-function temperature coefficient thermistorPTC
thermistor which shows a step-like increase in its resistance when the increasing temperaturereaches a specific value
A PTC thermistor will show secondary effects which are to be taken into account
zero-power resistanceR
value of the resistance of a PTC thermistor, at a given temperature,under conditions suchthat the change in resistance due to the internal generation of heat is negligible with respectto the total error of measurement
NOTE Any resistance value of a PTC thermistor is dependent on the value and the mode of the applied voltage(a.c. or d.c.) and. when an a.c.source is used, on the frequency (see 3.8 and 3.9).
nominal zero-power resistanceRn
d.c. resistance value of a thermistor measured at a specified temperature, preferably at 25 C,with a power dissipation low enough that any further decrease in power will result only in anegligible change in resistance.Zero-power resistance may also be measured using a.c. ifrequired by the detail specification
voltage dependency
secondary effect,exhibiting a decreasing resistance with increasing voltage across thethermistor when measured at a constant body temperature
frequency dependency
secondary effect exhibiting a substantial decrease of the positive temperature coefficient ofthe thermistor with increasing frequency
