Stackpole Product Highlight - Stackpole's BR Series Bare Element Current Sense Resistors for Lower PCB Temperatures


RALEIGH, NC (Mar. 25, 2013) – The BR series from Stackpole is a thru hole current sense resistor series offering power ratings up to 5 watts with low PCB temperatures. The BR series elevates the resistive element off of the board for maximum cooling into the ambient air and minimizing the amount of heat that must be dealt with at the board level. This makes the BR ideal for power management in power supplies, small motors, industrial controls as well as audio applications, robotics, and portable power tools.

The BR is available in 1, 3, and 5 watt power ratings, in values from 5 milliohms to 100 milliohms and in tolerances as low as 1%. Pricing 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. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributors for volume pricing. Current lead-times are 8 weeks, with many popular values and sizes available from stock.
