Can the TMP61, TMP63 and TMP64 be used in ambient air temperatures outside its recommended temperature range?

  • Yes it can for a limited amount of time.  We do not recommend using these thermistors for too long in applications with temperatures going outside the recommended temp range because there are risks of accelerated failure.

    The TMP61, TMP63, and TMP64 cannot be used outside their absolute maximum ratings.  Stresses beyond those listed under Absolute Maximum Ratings may cause permanent damage to the device. These are stress ratings only, which do not imply functional operation of the device at these or any other conditions beyond those indicated under Recommended Operating Conditions. Exposure to absolute-maximum-rated conditions for extended periods may affect device reliability.
