SMD Resistor Handles Up To 12 Watts
Mon, 08/29/2011 - 10:50am
The HPC12 from Stackpole is a high power handling SMD resistive device. It is rated for 5 W of power in free air, but can handle 12 W continuously with 400 lfm air movement on standard recommended solder pads with no heat sink needed. Its housing provides heat transfer to the ambient air from the thick film element. The terminals are attached with high temperature solder and can withstand a full minute in a 300C bath with no degradation. In addition, the HPC12 can withstand surges of over 2000 W for pulse durations of less than 10 microseconds. The HPC12 appropriate for industrial and commercial power supply applications, motor controls, aircraft and aerospace, remote telecom and datacom power systems, test systems for power controls and power IC's, petroleum exploration equipment, and mining equipment, medical grade monitors, remote sensing, and wind measurement systems.
