Direct's (BWL) power low resistance resistor minimise power consumption.
In response to demand for more energy efficient products, Direct Electronics has expanded its current sensing series offering with the launch of the BWL series, its lowest resistance value resistor, to minimise power consumption.
The BWL series has been designed for current sensing in power electronic systems and the resistors are available in 0.5W to 10W power ratings, with a wide ohmic range starting from as low as 0.005Ω.
Products in the economical, low-inductance BWL resistors are axial leads with high temperature mold compound, making them well-suited to the industry trend and are ideal for all types of current sensing applications including switching and linear power supplies, instruments and power amplifiers
In addition, the BWL series utilizes metal strip technology, essential for those involved in constructing devices and circuits for the detection of currents.
Direct's BWL standard series is lead-free and RoHS compliant and can be a replacement for Vishay, IRC, KOA, Panasonic current sense resistor with more competitive price and short lead time. Contact us with your specific needs.
