Temperature Compensator 32 (Type 1)

Temperature Compensator 32 (Type 1) is a 32% nickel-iron alloy whose magnetic permeability decreases at a controlled rate with increase in temperature. Type 1 has been used when compensation is required over a wide range of temperatures and particularly at higher temperatures than Types 2 and 4. It is used in electrical circuits to compensate for the effect of variations in ambient temperature.
