High power resistors are used to dissipate unwanted electrical energy, or as resistive heaters for the deliberate generation of heat. They are often designed for mounting onto a heatsink or housing surface to maximize thermal transfer away from the resistor. Designing with high power resistors requires an appreciation of the methods of thermal management.
For higher powers into th... Read more...More Product Announcements from TT Electronics
TT Electronics has extended its MFC series of metal foil chip resistors with a new 2817 size that can dissipate up to 3W. Ideal for current sensing in the 1A to 30A range, the MFC2817 chip resistors enable designers to achieve highly compact power conversion circuits in demanding industrial and medical applications.
In addition to power supply and DC-DC converters, these metal foi... Read more...More Product Announcements from TT Electronics
One of the options which designers and component engineers consider when looking for a rugged power resistor is a ceramic substrate-based unit. These resistors are capable of providing reasonably rugged performance for some situations, but not the harshest ones or those with additional design-in constraints. The extreme combination of heat and vibration which these resistors must tolerat... Read more...More Product Announcements from TT Electronics
