High power current sense resistors have terminal choices

The resistors are available in two-terminal and four-terminal options.  The two-terminal models are available in three different footprint sizes: 5930, 3920 and 2512 (6332 metric). Resistance values are as low as 0.2mΩ, enabling each family to have a range of low resistance options and power ratings of up to 15W. The four-terminal design allows for high precision four-Kelvin resistance measurements and is available in size 4026.


Other characteristics are long term stability, low inductance, low thermal EMF, and custom capability, says the company. The resistors are AEC-Q200-compliant and have been designed for applications such as current sensing, battery management systems, power modules/motor controllers, as well as frequency converters


The resistors detect and convert current to an easily measured voltage which is proportional to the current through the device.
