Positive Coefficient Temperature (PTC) heaters are self-regulating heaters, that run open-loop without any external diagnostic controls. While traditional fixed-resistance heaters employ wires and coils to generate heat, PTC heaters use conductive inks printed on thin, flexible polymer-based substrates. Scoring high on reliability and efficiency, they are ideal for products that require safer, faster and more uniform heating.
This brief guide is designed to answer all your burning questions - the what, why and where of PTC heaters.
