Thermistors differ from resistance temperature detectors (RTD) in that the material used in a thermistor is generally a ceramic or polymer, while RTDs use pure metals. Automatic fire extinguisher using robot. Thermistors are available in large range of sizes and base resistance values (resistance at 25°C).

Interchangeability is possible to ±°C although ±1°C is more common. Thermistor construction. The most common form of the thermistor is a bead with two wires attached. The bead diameter can range from about mm (") to 5mm (''). NTC and PTC thermistors both change in accordance to the temperature they are exposed to, but they do so in opposite manners.

NTC Thermistor Resistance. Negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors are thermistors whose resistance value decreases when the temperature they are exposed to increases. It's an inverse relationship. Heat is generated by the applied voltage and current, and the resistance changes with the change of temperature.
