Stackpole's Raised Element Current Sense Resistor Lower PCB temps

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.

HDM Series Economical Axial Leaded Resistors Offer Anti-Moisture Performance and 1% Tolerance

RALEIGH, NC (Mar. 28, 2018) – The HDM series from Stackpole is an axial leaded carbon film technology resistor with outstanding moisture withstanding capability. Axial leaded resistors that need to withstand high humidity typically require a metal glaze technology which is considerably more expensive. The HDM series can survive 100 hours in a pressure cooker at 120ºC, over 98% relative humidity and 2 atmosphere’s pressure while standard carbon film and metal film resistors would fail.
