VPG Announce New COTS Burden Resistor for Current Sensing Transformers

Vishay Precision Group, Inc. announced that its Vishay Foil Resistors product line (VFR) has introduced the new high-precision Bulk Metal® Foil Burden through-hole resistor. Designed for connection to the secondary-side of current sensing transformers, the device offers low TCR down to ±0.2 ppm/°C from -55°C to +125°C, 25°C ref., and excellent load-life stability of ±0.005% after 2,000 hours at 0.1 W at 70°C. Current sensing transformers act as current sources and require a load. Like a voltage source, a current source shouldn't be left open, as it would cause an infinite voltage. The VFR Burden resistor converts the current to a limited voltage. Typically, the device will be used to discharge a capacitor when the circuit is no longer powered. The Burden resistor offers a maximum power rating of 0.6 W at +70°C. The device features a resistance range from 1 Ω to 500 Ω, with tight resistance tolerance to ±0.005% (50 ppm). Any conceivable ohmic value within this range, to six digits, is available with no additional cost or lead time effect. The resistor withstands ESD spikes to at least 25 kV and is available with both lead (Pb)-free and tin/lead alloy termination finishes.
