Token's open air 4-terminal kelvin connected resistors (LRD)
tackle current sensing applications.
Always preferred in current sense applications, Token's LRD Series range is available in the 1W, 3W, 5W, 7W and 10W packages, resistance values down to 0.001 ohm, with tolerances as tight as 0.50% and TCRs of 50ppm standard.
The 4 Lead Kelvin configuration enables current to be applied through two opposite terminals and a sensing voltage to be measured across the other two terminals, eliminating the resistance and temperature coefficient of the terminals for a more accurate current measurement.
With up to 10W power rating and TCRs as low as 50ppm/°C, the LRD 4-Lead Kelvin resistors deliver excellent performance, making them ideal for a variety of applications. The resistor is constructed using a low-resistance, low-inductance, high-impulse proprietary metal element that gives the device its extended power and temperature ratings.
Continually upgrading its current sense resistors to take advantage of modern technologies and manufacturing methods, Token is now able to offer complete ranges of products which meet the RoHS requirements and in addition to detailing these, the component selector also provides designers with a comprehensive selection of application notes.
The Open Air (LRD) Kelvin 4-terminal Resistor can be manufactured to custom length/width for use as a current shunt. Token will also produce outside these specifications to meet customer requirements. Contact us with your specific needs.
