I am using 2016L100/33 littelfuse PTC in one of our application. I want to know the recovery time for over current.
What I can understand is for short circuit current, recovery time will be more as higher tempearture will be generated due to large inrush current.
But for overcurrent, typically 110% of Hold Current, PTC temperature will not increase as high as for short circuit current. So recovery time also should be less

Please corrent me if wrong?

I tried to get this curve from datasheets of PTC, but its not available.
Do anybody has an idea about range for recovery time of PTC?
