WSBS8518..M3 / M4 shunt resistors

Vishay Intertechnology introduces the new WSBS8518...M3 and WSBS8518...M4 36 W Power Metal Strip battery shunt resistors featuring M3 and M4 tapped holes, respectively. With extremely low resistance values down to 50 µΩ in the 8518 case size, the Vishay Dale devices increase accuracy and lower costs compared with Hall Effect current sensing solutions, while their tapped holes aid in PCB mounting, provide extra support against vibration, and offer a location to attach voltage sense pins.
