Ametherm today announced a distribution agreement with Dexter Magnetic Technologies, a supplier of magnetic solutions since 1951. Under the terms of the agreement, Dexter is now carrying and providing technical support for Ametherm’s most popular inrush current limiting thermistors.
Dexter supplies magnetic solutions, including magnetic cores and accessories, to a wide range of markets, from industrial to aerospace. With the goal of providing the power industry with custom solutions, the company has been carrying the SURGE-GARD™ line of inrush current limiter products, which has recently been acquired by Ametherm. By adding Ametherm’s own NTC thermistors to its lineup as well, Dexter is significantly broadening the applications the company can address.
Made in the U.S.A., Ametherm’s RoHS-compliant current limiting power thermistors are recognized by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA International) for ensured safety. The devices are optimized for a wide variety of applications, including AC motors, power supplies, motor drives, audio amplifiers, and battery chargers.
“Both Dexter’s magnetic solutions and our NTC thermistors can both be found in a number of the same applications, including inverters, transformers, HVAC systems, and more,” said Medhi Samii, vice president of engineering at Ametherm. “With Dexter carrying our NTC thermistors, in addition to our SURGE-GARD line, Dexter customers experience a broader solution offering from a single source. For Ametherm, this will greatly increase sales and our presence in a number of key markets.”
“At Dexter, we strive to distinguish ourselves in the power industry by offering custom solutions for our customers’ specific applications,” said Chuck Wild, business manager for Dexter Magnetic Technologies. “To that end, we are very excited to add Ametherm’s thermistors to our lineup, providing our customers with a convenient source for reliable inrush protection.”
