Resistors are part of electrical circuits that, for example, rectify current produced in alternating voltage, thereby facilitating the most efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable energy transfer possible. Resistors are used again in the eventual conversion of rectified current into usable alternating voltage.
EBG’s resistors regulate voltage, for instance, in power electronics of frequency converters for locomotives or wind turbines as well as in modern medical equipment. Their advantage is a very low temperature and voltage coefficient, a high degree of stability, high-temperature resistance, and very low tolerances.
EBG produce shunts in three different power categories with four-contact kelvin connectors.
They feature a high insulation resistance and low temperature coefficients.
Shunts are typically used in current measurement and current monitoring.
Shunt resistors are available in two different designs:
the SOT-227 design for mounting on a heat sink or the design in a compact housing, e.g., for on-board assembly.
