Heatsinkable power resistor delivers 2000 W

Ohmite's TA2K0 Series of heatsinkable power resistors is now available in 14 stocked resistance values, ranging from 0.50 to 1000 ohms and provides power ratings up to 2000 Watts.

The resistors offer high power density in a 3 x 3 inch footprint and a height of 1.548 inch.

Stocked in 10% tolerance, the thick film resistors offer a TCR of 250ppm/C. The TA2K0 power resistor provides non-inductive performance in an operating temperature range of -55 to +85°C.  

Applications include the manufacture of fuel cells,inverters (DC to AC) and charge controllers used in photovoltaic and wind power systems. Ohmite have increased the power rating of the company's components to meet the demands of products which are scaled up above 10 kV and up to 100 kV.
