Using Multiple Thermistors for Averaging – Application Note


BAPI can supply 20K-2 and 20K-3 thermistor sensors.  These thermistors are exactly twice the resistance of the 10K-2 and 10K-3 thermistors throughout the temperature range of 32°F to 158°F (0°C to 70°C).  They also have the accuracy specification of ±0.2°C over that temperature range.

If an average temperature of a large space such as a ballroom or auditorium is required, the 20K sensors can allow very flexible positioning of multiple sensors while giving the same resistance as a 10K thermistor.  Several applications are shown below.
