At the heart of the innovative resistor range lies unmatched power and dependability, introducing fresh possibilities, expanded temperature resistance, and efficient space-saving solutions for developers.
In a move aimed at providing cutting-edge solutions to design engineers across various industries, element14 has announced the addition of a range of special flat chip resistor solutions from KOA Corporation (KOA) to its extensive inventory. KOA resistors have gained recognition for their exceptional performance and find applications in demanding sectors such as automotive, industrial, aerospace, medical, instrumentation, and power conversion. Among the newly stocked resistors is the RN73R, a high precision and high-reliability thin film resistor. It supersedes the RN73 series, boasting improved electrolytic corrosion resistance and enhanced stability. This resistor is poised to make waves in industries requiring precision circuits.
Designed for challenging environments and high-precision circuits in sectors like automotive and aerospace, the RN73H resistor in the series offers outstanding moisture resistance due to an additional inner protective layer. Despite its ultra-thin film, it promises reliable performance in demanding conditions. The RS73, another high precision resistor using thick film technology, is ideal for long-term stability. It is particularly well-suited for high-accuracy sensing and voltage detection circuits, addressing the needs of automotive, industrial, and measuring applications where Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) sensitivity is a concern.
The SG73P, an endured pulse power thick film resistor, offers seven times the pulse handling capability of standard flat chip resistors. Its unique trimming allows for a higher power rating, facilitating easy replacement in existing designs without altering the PCB layout. The WK73R wide termination thick film resistor stands out for designers focused on space conservation. Its 0612 chip size offers a 6x power rating compared to standard 1206 parts, resulting in improved heat dissipation. Larger terminals enhance terminal strength, while reduced terminal spacing minimizes expansion stress.
The inventory of resistors also includes the HV73(V)-series, suitable for high voltage applications, with the ability to handle voltages up to 3 kV. Additionally, the TLR low-ohm, high-power metal plate shunt resistors offer a wide resistance range from 0.5mΩ to 20mΩ and low inductance, removing any hotspots. The TLRZ series metal plate zero-ohm jumpers are designed for high currents in small sizes, serving as a viable replacement for thick film devices in existing designs. UR73 and UR73V resistors cater to low resistance and low TCR thick film resistor needs for various applications, including automotive, power supply, motor control, and industrial automation. The newly introduced resistors can be purchased from Farnell in EMEA, element14 in APAC, and Newark in North America, ensuring global accessibility to these cutting-edge solutions. Design engineers can now harness the potential of resistors to advance innovation in their respective fields.
