BR series bare element shunts offer lower PCB thermal stress
Current sensing for motor control applications often requires robust current handling and the lowest possible PCB temperatures. Unfortunately, high current or overload current handling typically means higher PCB temperatures.
ASR / ASRM anti-surge resistors handle surges up to 10KV
High voltage applications such as HVAC controls, appliance and white goods controls, metering, automation, medical devices, digital storage, and surge protection devices typically require resistors with high working voltage that may be challenging to find. If the applications are low current or low energy, film resistors are an ideal technology.
RTAN tantalum nitride precision chip resistors offer improved pulse handling
Precision electronics applications such as instrumentation, medical devices, avionics, and aerospace not only require resistors with tight tolerance and low TCR, but also environmental stability. When these applications also require pulse handling, finding the right resistor can be challenging because precision thin film resistors are not typically known for their pulse handling.
Stackpole release CSRT-AS anti-sulfur metal film chip resistors
Applications such as industrial and automotive power control require low resistance values, high power ratings, and resistance to sulfur contamination. Stackpole state. Thick film chip resistors are not typically sulfur resistant, especially in higher power ratings, and many high-power resistor series do not offer values below 1ohm.
Stackpole SMD wirewounds offer power ratings up to 4W
High power applications requiring resistors with power ratings above 1W can be challenging. For ceramic based chip resistors, this generally requires chip sizes of 2010 or larger which are susceptible to cracking and solder joint failure.
Stackpole releases RPCA automotive grade pulse withstanding chip resistor
High reliability chip resistors can be more difficult to find and even more so when there are pulse handling requirements.
Stackpole’s MLFM15 offers 0.3W power rating
MELF resistors are known for their thermal characteristics and their environmental and electrical stability.
Stackpole expands CSRF2817 resistance range up to 0.1 ohm
Current sensing for a wide range of products and applications requires both low and high resistance values with high stability, reliability, and low TCR.
Stackpole improves RMCS0603 working voltage to 75V
Sulphur contamination for thick film resistors is becoming a more prominent issue for a wide range of end products.
Stackpole's automotive grade thick film chip resistors
Automotive grade resistors offer increased reliability and improved performance without the high cost and limited availability of components procured to established reliability military specifications.
Stackpole kelvin current sense shunt offers resistance values down to 0.5 milliohm
High efficiency current sensing requires low resistance values. However, lead resistance may cause inaccuracies in sensing measurement for ultra-low resistance values.
Stackpole launches 7W current sensing resistor
Power electronic engineers continue to push for higher power, lower values, and better precision. Most common resistor technologies cannot adequately meet all three requirements, but Stackpole’s CSS/CSSH Series is able meet these demands in a variety of sizes, power ratings and values.
HCS high current metal shunt for hybrid power sources
As power electronics evolve, the requirements for high current, low resistance sensing resistors continues to increase. Emerging applications, such as hybrid power systems, may require high power, high accuracy, and low thermal resistance. These are a difficult combination for many traditional sense resistor technologies.
Stackpole improves TCR on RMCW wide terminal thick film resistors
Commercial and industrial power electronics increasingly demand robust power supplies with high stability and low thermal resistance. For these requirements, standard chip resistors may not be the best solution.
CSSK3637 four terminal shunt resistors for accurate current sensing requirements
Current sensing for high efficiency typically requires very low resistance values. However, sensing accuracy is more challenging for lower resistance values due to lead resistance effects. Four terminal shunt resistors eliminate errors due to lead resistance.
HCSM2818 current shunt resistors offer a 5W power rating
Modern electronics utilise current sense resistors for portable power management. As larger and more powerful devices become portable, higher currents and higher power ratings become critical, however, space for any portable electrical device must always be conserved.
RNCF Ultra-Precision thin film resistors
RNCF Ultra-Precision thin film resistors offer Tolerances As Low As 0.01% and TCR Down To 2 ppm
Lead-free thick film chip resistors
Surface mount resistors have complied with the EU’s ROHS standards through exemption 7c-I.
RTAN series tantalum nitride precision chip resistors add 10 ppm/ºC TCR capability
Stackpole’s AEC qualified RTAN series utilises tantalum nitride technology to provide moisture proof precision chip resistor performance.
CSRT2512-UP 3.5W high power chip resistors in stock
2512 size chip resistors can typically be found with one to two watt power ratings. However, as electronic devices add functions and capability, higher power ratings become increasingly important. Stackpole has the CSRT2512-UP, which is a 2512 size chip resistor with a 3.5W power rating, in stock currently in a range of popular values.
