New Product Introductions
Ohmite is expanding it's growing line of Heatsinks. The Ohmite PA/PV series heatsinks use forged pin construction. The thermal efficiency of a heatsink is determined by many variables. One of the main variables is the surface area. The pin fin construction of the PA/PV series produces more surface area than the standard extruded designs. In addition to the increased surface area the pin fin design also allows air flow to be entered from multiple directions. Standard extrusion heatsinks only allow airflow along the fins of the heatsink. With the ability to flow air in multiple directions the designer is released from restrictions typically associated with extrusion based heatsink designs.
The FCSL offering extends to two new sizes. The FCSL20 and the FCSL32 have been added to the FCSL platform increasing options for the part series. The FCSL20 and FCSL32 correlate to 0508 and 0612 sizes with the terminations located on the long edge for increased current handling.
Ohmite extends the tolerance offering for the FCSL series. The tolerance of 0.5% is now avaiable across the product line. This new tolerance offers a higher degree of accuracy for design engineers with more exacting needs.
Using a metal alloy strip as the resistive medium, the TCR’s are kept at low levels. TCR’s range from 150ppm to 50ppm depending on the value and size chosen. All popular sizes and values are covered with this series. Sizes include 0402, 0603, 0805, and 1206. These sizes are available from 2 milli-ohms up to 20 milli-ohms producing a nice range for current sense applications looking to minimize power consumption. The Ohmite LVT series is constructed in a Flip Chip style providing an economical current sense chip and a great extension to the ever-expanding offering from Ohmite.
Ohmite D Series heatsinks provide an innovative solution for SMT compatible semiconductors and resistors. The unique design (Patent Pending) combines tin plated, solderable rods with an aluminum extruded heat sink body. These rods (or “rollers”) are mated mechanically to the heatsink by forging to reduce the thermal resistance between the heatsink body and the solderable feet.
Designed to replace any TO-252 package. The TKH45 is rated at 45 watts with a thermal resistance of 3.0°C/W in a surfacemount design capable of high wattage dissipation with the proper heatsink and thermal considerations. The Ohmite D series heatsinks with the TKH45 presents a complete solution for your surfacemount wattage requirements. The thick film construction enables non-inductive performance and is suited for pre charge and snubber applications. Other key design features include:
- Elimination of multiple thermal layers including metal header for greater thermal performance.
- No wire bonds or molding for increased reliability.
- Larger resistance area for increased surge handling.
Due to their non-inductive design, these resistors are ideally suited for high-frequency and pulse-load applications. Available in 120- or 200-watt sizes, this resistor is designed for direct mounting onto a heatsink. Popular applications include variable speed drives, power supplies, control devices, telecom, robotics, motor controls, and other switching designs.
The SMU series offers a maximum power dissipation of 1/4 watt. The SMU is designed to keep the lowest profile. This is done by having the adjustment location on the top of the potentiometer. The adjustment of the full range of resistance can be accomplished with a single turn. This provides the user with a quick adjustment. The adjustment can also be completed with either a flat head or “Phillips” screw driver, adding another layer of ease for the user. The SMU series is offered in standard values from 50 ohms up to 2M ohms and the outer casing meets UL 94V-0 requirements.
January 2018The Ohmite FSR Series (Force-Sensing Resistors) exhibit the unique characteristic of dynamic resistance related to the amount of applied force. In general applications, the more force applied to the surface of the sensor, the lower the resistance. The resistance change is inversely proportional to the applied force. Force Sensing Resistors offer many benefits for HMI ( Human Machine Interface) sensing in a wide range of markets and applications versus mechanical switching or capacitive sensing. These include but are not limited to:
• Small, thin and light
• Largely immune to EMI and water events
• Low power
• False touch rejection
• Cost effective
• Highly Durable (>10M activations typical)
The FST series Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) from Ohmite provides predictable resistance change based on temperature. The SMD chip based design is offered in the popular 0805 size. The FST series is manufactured using a thin film process and contains Palladium (Pd) in the terminations. The Pd is known for its stability and allows a clean connection, helping to eliminate any thermal drift at the connection points. The FST series is produced to the DIN 60751 standard and is available in both the B and 2B tolerances classes.
The FC4T series from Ohmite provides a great TCR rating and low values. The 4 terminal construction is suited for current sense applications and helps deliver an accurate reading to the sensing circuit. The FC4T series is produced in a flip chip design providing outstanding specifications at a lower cost. The FC4T series carries a range of resistance from 0.005-0.100 ohms and a TCR down to 50ppm. Another great specification is the 0.5% tolerance in all values. Combining tolerance, values, and stability in a cost conscience package draws attention from a multitude of engineers.
