Vishay's New Power Metal Strip Meter Shunt Resistor is Industry First to Offer Direct PCB Mounting
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. today announced a new Power Metal Strip® meter shunt resistor that is the industry's first with sense leads designed to be soldered directly to the PCB, eliminating the need for costly flexible leads. The WSMS2908 combines a 3 W power capability in the 2908 size package with extremely low resistance values.The
The WSMS2908 features a five-terminal connection design and an all-welded construction that contributes to its superior electrical performance. The resistor offers very low inductance values of < 5 nH and a low thermal EMF of < 3 µV/°C. The device is lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant.
Samples and production quantities of the new meter shunt resistor are available now, with a lead time of eight to 10 weeks for larger orders.
