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
“What’s the big deal? It’s just a resistor” are phrases you’ll hear from designers whose application demands are routine and modest (a situation where it’s OK to say that), or those who are inexperienced and naïve (where it is not OK). Yes, a resistor’s world is constrained by two simple equations: V = IR and R = I2R – but there is muc... Read more...More Product Announcements from TT Electronics
Less than 2mm thick, and weighing as little as 6.5 grams, WSHR thick-film on steel heaters save the space consumed by conventional alternatives comprising bulky wirewound or PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) components. The family comprises six sizes from 32mm x 28mm up to 152mm x 102mm, with power ratings from 144W at 120V to 1.2kW at 240V. Their planar design ensures uniform tempe...

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.

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
TT Electronics has announced the introduction of of two additional resistor types that expand and enhance its high reliability CR and HR series. The latest versions of these thick-film chip resistors are in the smaller 0603 size and hence offer greater opportunities for use in compact circuits where guaranteed performance and footprint size are critical.
For use in applications in... Read more...More Product Announcements from TT Electronics
