Thermistor in Tikz circuit library

Is there a symbol like a thermistor in the Tikz circuit library? I read the documentation and couldn't find anything like it. There is a symbol for a varistor but what I'm looking for would be something like this:

rather than this:

You need the version 0.3.0 of the circuitikz package to draw thermistors. Once you have installed it, use the following code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[europeanresistors]{circuitikz}
\begin{document}
\begin{circuitikz}
\draw (0,0) to[thR] (2,0);
\end{circuitikz}
\end{document}


as you can see in the manual at page 10.

• Is it possible to do this without the circuitikzlibrary but the Tikzcircuit library? Or if not then is it possible to do this inside a tikzpicture? – David Wright Sep 23 '13 at 15:12
• Circuitikz runs under Tikz. All of the Tikz library, in fact all Tikz plotting features, are available from Circuitikz. (If you want, you can connect components using decorations.) – John Kormylo Sep 23 '13 at 15:23
• Could you tell me how I could connect these two using the same coordinates, or where I could find an example? I tried opening a circuitikzinside a tikzpicture but that was obviously not the right approach. – David Wright Sep 24 '13 at 7:20
• @DavidWright I don't know how to connect the two, I use directly circuitikz for design the whole circuit (see some example at the end of the manual) – Red Sep 24 '13 at 7:47

I found out that by using

\usepackage{circuitikz}


you don't need use

\begin{circuitikz}
...
\end{circuitikz}


inside an existing tikzpicture, you can just simply access circuitikz elements like

\draw (0,0) to[thR] (2,0);


using the same coordinates as the rest of the tikzpicture Thanks for your help.
