High Power Shunts For Cooler Operation

Stackpole Electronic's HCS Series of high power shunts have a robust all metal welded construction. The raised element structure of the HCS Series will run at least 15ºC cooler than comparable sized and rated flat chips making it suitable for temperature sensitive applications. The HCS Series offers low resistance values down to 0.3 mW for higher efficiency at high current levels. Finally, TCR for the HCS Series ranges from ±50 ppm to ±150 ppm for accurate sensing with respect to temperature without the need for a four terminal connection.
