The purpose of this paper is to study the properties of disc type negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors based on the spinel system Mn‐Co‐Ni‐O with the doping of RuO2 for the low‐resistance applications.
Emphasis was placed on the properties of ruthenium dioxide doped manganite spinel system for low‐resistance applications. The properties such as microstructure, X‐ray diffraction analysis and electrical properties are reported.
The prepared NTC thermistor compositions revealed the room temperature resistance and thermistor constant in the range of 28‐2,950 Ω and 1,539‐3,428 K, respectively. Hence, the prepared NTC thermistors with low resistance and moderate sensitivity are suitable from an industrial applications point of view.
The paper reports upon a synthesis procedure which is a straightforward preparation of highly densified ternary oxide (Mn‐Co‐No‐O) thermistors.
