Temperature Coefficient (Alpha) calculators determine the beta value of NTC thermistors, in addition to their temperature coefficient and resistance temperature characteristics using the Steinhart-Hart Equation.
Thermistor's beta value indicates the shape of the curve representing the relationship between device resistance and temperature. Beta value is used to calculate temperature coefficient of the thermistor, which is used in calculating the temperature accuracy of the thermistor. Temperature coefficient of a thermistor is used when calculating its tolerance in terms of temperature. Can reportedly determine tolerance at any temperature for any given beta value. With Steinhart and Hart Calculator, temperature for any given resistance can be calculated using coefficients based on three measurements: low-, mid-, and high-temperature.
