Stackpole Adds 3.5W-Rated Current Sense Chip Resistor



Power supplies and power controls have a wide range of sensing requirements. For applications that require high sensing precision and high power where the element TCR is more important than low resistance values, the CSRT2512-UP offers a 3.5W rated chip resistor in a package that normally only allows for 1 or 2 watts.

The CSRT2512-UP offers 50 ppm TCR in resistance values from 50 milliohm up to 33 ohms and absolute resistance tolerances as low as 0.5%. The metal film element of the CSRT has excellent environmental stability as well showing very low resistance shift over a range of industry standard performance tests such as load life, biased humidity, and short time overload.

The outstanding electrical and environmental stability of the CSRT makes it a popular choice for a wide range of consumer electronics, computer and telecom equipment, measurement systems, battery power management, motor controls, and high end power supplies.

Pricing for the CSRT2512-UP varies with resistance value, and tolerance and ranges from $0.20 to $0.25 each in full package quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributors for volume pricing.
