Precision shunt resistors
Vishay Precision Group's (NYSE: VPG) Alpha Electronics FNP Series of high-power precision shunt resistors are designed for instrumentation and automated test equipment applications.
Vishay Precision Group’s (NYSE: VPG) Alpha Electronics FNP Series of high-power precision shunt resistors incorporate bulk metal foil technology for a low temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) down to 0±1 ppm/°C, depending upon selected model. They also integrate a sensor for accurate onboard temperature monitoring of the resistive element with added performance stability. Units feature a maximum handling capability of 500W rated power, with no standard resistance value. An integral copper plate helps the FNP Series to achieve an improved thermal resistance specification of 0.1°C/W (0.3°C/W standard), while a resistance tolerance of 0.05% ensures minimized energy consumption. They are designed for applications such as including automated test equipment (ATE); weighing scales, precision instrumentation, and industrial process control.
