PTCs (a.k.a. Circuit Breakers) vs. Fuses

PTCs (a.k.a. Circuit Breakers) vs. Fuses  Logo

The PTC, or Positive Temperature Coefficient Resistor, acts as a type of circuit breaker. In general, the resistance increases dramatically as the PTC threshold temperature is exceeded due to the load current passing through it. This presents a high resistance, which in effect opens a circuit, protecting the device in question in the event of an over current condition. This is a misunderstood and widely misused component, and this application note should help clarify the most appropriate applications for the PTC.
