BR Series Bare Element Current Sense Resistor

RALEIGH, NC (April 3, 2018) - Stackpole's BR series offers 1W, 3W, and 5W power ratings in a raised element thru hole current sense resistor. The raised element improves the convection cooling of the part to the ambient air and minimizes the heat conducted to the PCB. Resistance values range from 5 milliohm to 100 milliohm in tolerances as low as 1%. The all metal element offers robust pulse and surge handling making the BR an excellent choice for power supplies, small motors, industrial controls, as well as audio applications, robotics, and portable power tools.

Pricing for the BR varies with size, resistance value, and tolerance, and ranges from $0.16 to $0.38 for the most common values and sizes in full package quantities.
