Vishay Intertechnology announces a new Automotive Grade Power Metal Strip® battery shunt resistor that offers a 36 W power capacity in the 8518 case size with tin plating on the terminals. Featuring extremely low resistance values down to 50 µΩ, the Vishay Dale WSBS8518...14 will lead to increased accuracy and lower costs compared to Hall Effect current sensing solutions, while its tin plating assists with PCB mounting and provides increased protection against corrosion.
• Proprietary processing technique produces extremely low resistance values
• Allow for more accurate data to determine battery charge and discharge, thus helping designers meet specific customer battery management requirements
• Incorporates a solid metal manganese-copper alloy resistive element with low TCR (± 20 ppm/°C)
• All-welded construction
