Vishay’s Power Metal Strip® current sensing resistors combine superior performance with a wide range of package sizes for automotive, consumer, and industrial motor control.

Low ohmic resistance, in combination with low TCR and low thermal EMF, makes Power Metal Strip products the resistor of choice for high-current and high-power applications.

BENEFITS OF POWER METAL STRIP®

  • All-metal welded construction provides superior pulse tolerance
  • Extremely low resistance values; minimizes power loss and prevents parallel resistance elements
  • Low TCR; better temperature stability
  • Tight tolerance; improves measurement accuracy
  • Laser trimmed; enables design flexibility
