Stackpole Enhances High Voltage Chip Resistor Tolerances and TCR Values

October 11, 2021 by Hailey Stewart

HVCB High Voltage Precision Chip Resistors Offer 0.1% Tolerance and 25 ppm TCR.

High voltage applications frequently require high voltage resistors with high accuracy for voltage division, monitoring, and control. Some applications with more moderate working voltages may experience high voltage surges which may damage general purpose chip resistors.

For applications such as these, the HVCB series from Stackpole provides high precision, low VCR chip resistor with high stability. The HVCB is available in resistance values from 10K to 50G, in tolerances as low as 0.1%, and TCR as low as 25 ppm.

This precision high voltage performance is ideal for applications such as high voltage power supplies, voltage dividers, and a variety of medical applications such as patient monitoring, medical imaging, instrumentation, defibrillators, as well as applications for test and analysis, and data acquisition/communication and monitoring.

Pricing varies with size, tolerance, TCR, and resistance. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributor partners for specific pricing. Many popular sizes and resistance value combinations are currently in stock.
