    Default What component is this?

    Hi,
    I would like to ask help to identify an electronic component (see attached picture, NSP0212).
    The NSP0212 is cascade connected with a sauna infrared heater tube.
    There are three on the controller board, and one of them had burned out.
    It should be NTC, but what disturbes me is its resistance: around 0,04-0,06 Ohm. (I coud not measure it more precisely with my Ohm meter.)

    Can somebody help?

    Could be a PTC, though definitely not an MOV.
    If it's burned but showing little to no resistance it means it's failed shorted, that failure mode is rare with a PTC... But it shouldn't be an NTC if it's in series with a heater that should be prevented from a thermal runaway effect...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Sorry I wasn't quite precise. The burned one was broken away, the good ones have low resistance.
