    Just wait until these PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) heaters used on electric cars start going wrong

    Isnt yhat the right way around for safety? On a fridge open circuit on the sensor looks like very cold to an NTC device, so the compressor turns off. On a heating circuit open circuit om PTC looks like very hot, so element is disconnected. Failsafe im both cases.

    Or am I misunderstanding the point?
