TT Electronics introduces LCS series of thin film resistors

October 6, 2016 - TT Electronics, a provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, launched the LCS series of thin film resistors.  For sensing and measurement of DC and AC currents in the sub-3A range, the resistors bring precision thin film resistor performance into the field of low ohmic values for use in current sensing applications.  The resistors also feature low sensitivity to temperature variations.

Aimed at designers of power supplies, battery monitoring, process control and point of load converters, the LCS resistors will find acceptance for use in market sectors such as industrial, medical, instrumentation and IT.

The resistors offer a level of precision of ±0.5% and ±50ppm/°C, providing precision and temperature stability of current measurement.  TT Electronics’ LCS film system delivers lower TCRs (temperature coefficient of resistance) in the hundreds of milliohms range.

Available in five sizes from 0603 to 2512, LCS resistors feature power ratings, e.g. 1W for 2512, which is comparable to thick film ratings.  LCS also feature anti-sulphur terminations.

A major factor driving the demand for this type of product is the growth of battery powered equipment.  The proprietary thin film technology of TT Electronics’ LCS bridges the gap between the ohmic values offered by bulk metal chips and those of conventional nichrome thin film chips.
