Improved NTC Temperature Sensor for Pet Appliance


Pets are part of family lives. Taking care of a pet is a big responsibility, providing nutritious food, clean drinking water, shelter, and the opportunity to live in a safe home.

Pet appliances are electrical products specially designed and manufactured for pets, providing comfort and convenience to the little creatures. Pet appliance includes pet feeders, automatic pet water feeders, pet warming beds, etc. These products are usually designed with smart features, which can operate and adjust automatically according to the pets’ needs and behavioral habits.

NTC Temperature Sensor Designed for Pet Appliance


The NTC temperature sensor means sensor built with a negative temperature coefficient thermistor.

One of its features is that the resistance value decreases as the temperature increases. It has been widely used in temperature detection and control. In pet appliances, NTC temperature sensors can detect the pets’ body temperature and ensure their comfort as well as health.

In general, pet appliances with NTC temperature sensors can easily detect the body temperature of pets, and react with different intelligent settings.

For example, a cat house built with NTC temperature is a great idea as it can help to control the cat house maintain a constant temperature. When the cat house temperature is too high or too low, the NTC temperature probe inside can sound an alarm, the heater or air conditioning system will operate and adjust the temperature.
