The Thermo-String temperature sensor from Murata Electronics North America combines a cost-effective epoxy-coated tight tolerance chip thermistor with long flexible wire leads. With lengths from 25 to 150 mm (1 to 5.9 in) in 10-mm (0.4-in) increments starting at 30 mm (1.2 in), the bendable wire leads allow for greater flexibility in reaching the temperature-sensing location. The updated Thermo-String can operate over the wide automotive temperature range from -40° to +150°C (-40º to +302°F), making it useful for temperature monitoring and protection of lithium-ion batteries in hybrid-electric vehicles. The small coated sensing head is 1.6 mm (0.06 in) thick, making it conducive to placement in tight spaces. Resistant to mechanical vibrations and shock and meeting ELV/UL requirements, additional features of the Thermo-String include lead-free soldering, halogen-free materials, and RoHS compliance.
