Hendon Semiconductors Granted Patent for Temperature Control of Mains Powered Heater Element

Hendon Semiconductors has recently been granted patent which, forms part of the company’s portfolio covering heater temperature control solutions.

The patent (Patent no: 7,256,371) granted earlier in 2008 in the United States describes a method of controlling the temperature of an AC mains powered element exhibiting positive temperature coefficient (PTC) characteristics therefore eliminating the need of a separate sensor. The technology is implemented in the design of the OM1682A, precision triac control thermostat and IES5541A, relay drive with contact protection integrated circuits.

“The granting of this patent gives further strength to our position as we pursue commercialisation opportunities to our target markers from our R&D programs”, said Steven Fraser, Manager of Business and Product Development at Hendon Semiconductors.
