Thick film current sense resistors target sensing applications

Modern electronics systems are currently running at the highest efficiency levels in history due to a large part to lower operating voltages and currents, which enable higher speeds and allows designers to utilize non-precision components

Stackpole’s CSR/CSRN thick film current sense resistors have been developed to meet the markets current sensing requirements offering a broad range of sizes and a broad range of resistance values available in an inexpensive thick film technology. The CSR/CSRN is available in resistance values from 3 milliohm to 7 ohm depending on size, and in tolerances down to 1%.

Sizes range from 0201 (0.05W) to 1225 with long-sided terminations that is rated at 3W.This wide range of sizes and resistance values make the CSR / CSRN suitable for a wide range of applications including:

  • Power supply applications
  • Controls
  • Data and voice communications equipment
  • Instrumentation
  • AV systems and controls
  • Lighting and lighting controls
  • HVAC
  • Security, safety, and detection equipment
  • Industrial automation
  • Small motor controls and drives
