PSB-S5 Thermistor

If you need thermistors for a quick response

The PSB-S5 is only available from Shibaura since it was first introduced as the most compact glass-encapsulated thermistor manufactured on an automated mass production line. With its compact design and φ0.15mm dumet wires, the PSB-S5 comes into wider use including the automotive field where vibration resistance is required.

PSB-S5 Thermistor


  • Chip with gold electrodes
  • High-level heat resistance and environmental stability secured by glass encapsulation
  • Long-term stability in resistance
  • Six times faster in response than the PSB-S1
  • High-volume supply in high quality by integrated automatic production
  • Patented in 8 major countries (Japan, the U.S., Canada, France, the U.K., Germany, Italy and Switzerland)

Suitable for equipment requiring a quick response and for measurements in a narrow space

  • Energy-saving and green-oriented automobiles (air mass flow, T-MAPS, HV/HEV motors)
  • Fusers for copying machines
