Nifethal 70?

Recommended Posts

Well Zivipf has Nife 30 which is 70% nickel. The listed TCR is 520. Note Zivipf calls their Nife52 48.
Here is Kanthal's data sheet for Nife70, note the composition. 
Steamengine lists Nifethal70 (alloy 120) TCR @525
I assume that Zivipf's Nife30 is Nifethal 120, I have it, perhaps I'll give it a try tonight and report back.
I'm a big fan of Dicodes nife 30 btw which is 30% nickel (I think)
Interesting that you posted about it as it was already on my mind.

So I went ahead and made a couple of Zivipf Nife 30 coils, keep in mind that they are 70% nickel so that yields a fairly low resistance.
Also the TCR is high so  temp accuracy is easy for the board.
My coils are 8.5 wraps, 2 mm id, 26 gauge wire, x2, that come out to 0.6? which is a bit lower than I prefer but still doable.
I really see no real advantage using it over Nife48/52 but it is working well.

NiFethal70 works perfect in TC mode with DNA. I also use NiFethal52, but sometimes I experienced temperature disturbances.  NiFe70 is much more consistent and precise.
