Resistors - High Power Shunts
Challenge of Application:
Smart meters and hybrid automotive systems require new higher-performance resistors. Large cross-sections require highly consistent and repeatable electrical performance. New material systems for monitoring and managing current at high power utilize special designed alloys and cross sections.
Electron beam welding of specialty resistance alloys to copper in continuous coils. TECHNICAL MATERIALS utilizes new specialty welding and heat treating capabilities to create ultra precise devices.
