The resistance value of an NTC resistor is dependent on the temperature. In this experiment, a circuit is examined in which a transistor is triggered with an NTC resistor and switches a filament lamp on and off.
The NTC resistor, the potentiometer andvthe 10 k Ω resistor form a temperature dependent potential divider, from which the control voltage of a transistor is picked up. In order to realise both a light circuit and a dark circuit without a relay, the NTC resistor is inserted at various positions in the potential divider.


  • No additional cable connections between the building blocks needed - clear arragned and quick setup
  • Contact saftey due to puzzle blocks system
  • Corrosion-free gold plated contacts
  • Doubled earning sucess: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen unterside
