WSBS8518 battery shunt resistor

Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has unveiled a new Power Metal Strip battery shunt resistor that combines a 36W power capability in the 8518 size package with extremely low resistance values down to 100??.

The WSBS8518 battery shunt resistor features a proprietary processing technique that produces

extremely low resistance values of 100 ??, 125 ??, and 250 ??. This provides increased accuracy in battery shunt applications for gas, diesel, hybrid, and electric cars, trucks and scooters, as well as electric forklifts and other heavy industrial applications.

With a tolerance of 5 percent, the new resistor provides more accurate data to determine battery charge and discharge, thus helping designers meet specific customer battery management requirements.

The WSBS8518 features an all-welded construction that allows operation with continuous currents as high as 600A. The resistor offers low inductance values of RoHS-compliant.

Samples and production quantities of the new battery shunt resistor are available now, with a lead time of six to eight weeks for larger orders.
