POWER

THERMISTOR
The POWER THERMISTOR is a device for
suppressing inrush current to an electric
circuit. Circuits including electric bulbs or
capacitors induce a inrush current more
than 100 times the normal current when the
circuit switch is turned on. The POWER
THERMISTOR in the circuits protects
electric equipments from being damaged
by limiting the inrush current.

MARK is a NEW POWER THERMISTOR


featuring smaller size and larger energy
capacity to meet severe requirements in
inrush current suppression.
There is the tendency of miniaturization in
low power switching power supply, and
MARK is effectively applicable for the Application Accordingly, suitable thermistors are 6D-22, 5D-18
