The demand for these types of resistors has increased in the automotive sector with the proliferation of Hybrid and Electric cars and in the sector in general due to the enhanced level of computerization and sophistication of various control systems.To meet this enhanced demand, HTR has introduced a wide variety of Electron Beam welded current sense resistors which have very superior size to power rating ratio , Ultra Low ohmic values which help in reducing circuit power consumption.These resistors are high precision devices featuring low temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) thus making them very suitable over other devices in harsh temperature environments.
The very nature of the physical configuration of these resistors having large copper terminals lend to rugged mounting, superior power to size ratio, both qualities which are considered so desirable in automotive applications.
It is note worthy to point out that these Electron Beam shunts are now available from 2 watt rating to 10 watt rating and can dissipate in some cases over 200 amps without significant heating.
The HTR series which support this application are in a variety of sizes from 2512 to 5930 and physical configurations to suit most PCB design requirements.
A significant proportion of our production is for the automotive industry and our ISO/TS 16949: 2009 certification reinforces this.
