High power SMD resistor handles up to 12 W
The unique housing for the HPC12 provides outstanding heat transfer to the ambient air from the thick film element. The terminals are attached with high temperature solder and can withstand a full minute in a 300 °C bath with no degradation. In addition, the HPC12 can withstand surges of over 2000 W for pulse durations of less than 10 microseconds.
Stackpole’s Director of Marketing, Kory Schroeder states, "the HPC series offers a higher power rating than previously thought possible in an SMD device. It can be used with or without air movement and forces much less heat into the PCB compared to other power resistors of this size."
The HPC12 is a good choice for a wide variety of industrial and commercial power supply applications, motor controls, aircraft and aerospace, remote telecom and datacom power systems, test systems for power controls and power ICs, petroleum exploration equipment, and mining equipment, medical grade monitors, remote sensing, and wind measurement systems.
