New Line of Current Sense Resistors

April 26, 2016 by Power Pulse1595211359

At PCIM Bourns will launch a new series of high power, ultra-low ohmic current sense resistor products designed to save energy while maximizing performance. In addition to current sense resistors, Bourns will showcase its breadth of magnetics, Multifuse® PPTC resettable fuses and thyristor surge protector products. This broad line-up provides the technologies developers need to meet today's challenging power electronics requirements while offering a valuable "one-stop-shop" resource for OEMs.

Giving developers a real-world solution, Bourns and Texas Instruments will present a joint paper entitled, “Offline Non-Isolated Converter Protection” at 15:30 on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 in the Sensors, Control and Protection conference poster session. Attendees will learn how Polymeric Positive Temperature Coefficient (PPTC) devices provide a resettable alternative to other methods such as current measurement-based techniques.
