Bare-element resistors for measurement and control systems

October 02, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
MSR bare element resistors, from Arcol Resistors, have been developed for current sensing and shunt applications in intelligent power systems and instrumentation.

The MSR series feature a special alloy element, copper-clad steel leads and welded construction. Built in stand-offs and standard lead spacings make for simple PCB mounting. Arcol MSR Bare Element Resistors offer values from 0.0005Ω to 1Ω, are low inductance (less than 10 nH), have a flameproof construction, a TCR of 20 ppm/°C and are RoHS Compliant. MSR resistors will operate up to 275°C and have power ratings up to 5W at 85°C.
