Current sense resistors come in 2- and 4-terminal options

Current sense resistors come in 2- and 4-terminal options
The CSS series high power current sense resistors from Bourns that come in both 2-terminal and 4-terminal options can now be sourced in Europe through TTI. The 2-terminal models are available in three different footprint sizes: 5930, 3920 and 2512 (6332 Metric). With resistance values as low as 0.2mΩ, each family will have a range of low resistance options and power ratings of up to 15W.
