The temperature switch IC inverts the output according to the detected temperature, enabling a simple circuit configuration ideal for reducing costs and space in a system.
In a temperature switch that is configured using a thermistor, a comparison circuit is required downstream. However, this circuit is not required in SII’s temperature switch IC because the IC inverts the output when the detected temperature reaches a preset value. This makes the IC ideal for reducing costs and saving space in the customer’s system.
In the temperature switch ICs, the output is inverted when the temperature exceeds the set value.
The following temperature switch ICs are available: a latch type that maintains an inverted state (latch) to prevent an unstable output at the detected temperature and a hysteresis type that releases the inverted state when the temperature decreases to the set value.
