The HCSM2818 is a 5-W surface-mount current-sense shunt with excellent long-term stability and good TCR. The HCSM offers 4 and 5-m&OHM; values in 200-ppm TCR and 10, 15, and 20 m&OHM; values in 75-ppm TCR. The molded package and larger terminations provide exceptional thermal resistance and allows the part to run cooler at higher power levels than typical chip resistors of this size.
In addition, the HCSM is rated for full power operation up to 100°C and allows derated operation up to 170°C. This high temperature capability is important for high-current power control and monitoring, such as for power modules and inverter control, frequency converters, and power management for hybrid vehicles.
The HCSM2818 10, 15, and 20 m&OHM; values are in stock. Pricing for the HCSM depends on tolerance and ranges from $0.40 to $0.45 each in full package quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributor partners for volume pricing.
