Powertron ResistorPowertron, member of the Vishay Precision Group is producing precise power current sense resistors. The most precise measuring of electrical current is achieved using current sensing resistors. In this Webinar, we will present the Powertron Power Current Sense Resistors product line. These resistors provide higher accuracy and stability in current sensing applications than any other resistor technologies including thin film, thick film, and wirewound resistors. We will explore the key specifications of these devices, including TCR, thermal EMF, and load-life drift; stress factors such as variant ambient temperatures that can affect their accuracy and the advantage of using four terminal current measurement.  We will also highlight the need for precision resistors in a wide range of applications. The 15-20  minute presentation will be followed by a Q and A session.
