Ametherm offers a series of SL22 power thermistors that meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards.
Dual agency certifications ensure a product’s safety and reliability. The power thermistors provide inrush current protection for 65 to 100 J of energy and allow 800–1500 W in the 2–20 A range.
Ametherm’s Vice President of Engineering and Sales, Mehdi Samii, informed that any electrical components sold in Canada need to meet CSA standards. Manufacturers and engineers are more confident of electrical equipment with dual agency approvals for their design and development needs.
Samii further stated that there has been a significant demand for Ametherm’s SL22 power thermistors at both local and international levels. He added that agency approval involves comprehensive and rigorous testing and processing procedures and hence few manufacturers provide electronic devices that meet regulatory standards. Moreover, safety has become a universal standard, which makes it all the more important for electronic devices to meet agency approvals.
Ametherm, established in 1994, is an ISO9000:2001 certified company that manufactures and distributes a wide range of output protection devices across the globe. The company’s inrush current limiters are used for protecting circuits in the power market sector.
Ametherm’s headquarters is based in Carson City, Nevada, U.S.A.
