Automotive-grade high voltage thin film chip resistors offer low VCR

04-06-2024 | Stackpole | Passives

High-voltage applications often need high-voltage resistors with high accuracy for voltage division, monitoring, and control. Resistance stability over voltage, or VCR, may become an issue for precision applications.

Stackpole Electronics’ RNCV series offers an automotive-grade, high-precision, high-stability chip resistor with a VCR less than +/-1.5ppm per volt. The series is available in resistance values from 160K to 3.01M, tolerances as low as 0.1%, and TCR as low as 25ppm.

Thin film technology supplies excellent electrical and environmental stability. The series has low resistance shifts under industry-standard tests such as load life, damp heat with load, temperature cycling, and short-time overload. It is also anti-sulfur.

This precision high-voltage performance is ideal for applications such as high voltage power supplies, voltage dividers, and various medical applications such as patient monitoring, medical imaging, instrumentation, and defibrillators. It is also ideal for test and analysis applications; data acquisition, communication and monitoring.
