Glass Encapsulated Thermistor
The 55000 Series GEM (glass-encapsulated-material) thermistor combines proven thermistor technology with state-of-the-art automated assembly to produce characteristics common in higher-end glass thermistors at a price that approaches epoxy-coated components. The ability to produce this line of cost-effective glass thermistors is due to the proprietary MEAS automated thermistor manufacturing process. The system eliminates the variation normally involved in manual assembly by utilizing robotic cells to encapsulate the conducting material in glass. Automated, close loop calibration produces thermistors with the same interchangeability with smaller size than higher-end glass thermistors.
