New current sensing resistors from Panasonic

ERJ MS6Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems will soon be launching a new range of current sensing resistors featuring ultra-low ohmic values (as low as 0.5milliohms) and TCR values as low as 75ppm.

Panasonic ERJMS4 and ERJMS6–series components offer high power ratings of up to 5W and in different case sizes (1206 till 2526). Based on metal plate bonding technology, the parts offer excellent long term stability. The outer resin with high heat dissipation allows for a very wide operating temperature range of -65°C up to +170°C.

Panasonic ERJMS4 and ERJMS6 series devices have been designed for industrial electronics and automotive/transportation applications, e.g. engine cooling fan, engine ECU, braking system, steering EPS, transmission system, etc. Comments Stephane Ngandeu Latta, Product Manager, Panasonic Device Solutions Business Division: “Our new current sensing resistors are ideal for applications where high current measurement accuracy is important and are also well suited for current detection under high current circuit (short circuit current detection). Thanks to their AEC-Q200, ISO9001, and ISO/TS16949 certifications the products adhere to the most stringent quality standards available.”

The devices are fully RoHS/REACH compliant, making them very environmentally friendly.
