Surface Mount Resistor is Thermally Efficient
The HPC series from Stackpole is a compact surface mount 5 watt resistor. The HPC Series incorporates four parallel thick film chip resistor elements to accommodate the higher power handling and the anodized heat sink allows for increased heat dissipation into the ambient air. These parallel resistance elements allow the HPC Series to withstand up to 2500 watts for pulse durations of 100 microseconds or less. Stackpole says that this pulse withstanding makes it attractive for industrial machinery and controls, and power supplies of many different varieties and power levels. The HPC Series is a thermally efficient surface mount 5 watt resistor.
