Current Sense Resistors/Shunts

Current sense resistors are recognized as cost-effective components that help improve system efficiency and reduce losses due to their high measurement accuracy compared to other technologies.


prodline_current_sense_resistors_lg

While they are ideal for applications in virtually all market segments, current sense resistors are particularly useful in helping developers precisely measure current in their consumer and industrial designs.

Bourns offers current sense chip resistors with thick film, metal foil and metal strip resistive elements and electro-beam welded metal strip shunts.
