Battery management is the key problem facing the global automotive industry & the global electronics industry. With the multitude of electronic devices incorporated in Automobiles today monitoring the charging and usage of batteries via various control systems like the ECU is the norm.
Safety is a major concern for EV manufacturers and for manufacturers of portable battery powered devices like laptops, smart phones, digital cameras, and other handheld personal use devices. Designers incorporate current sensing resistors in their charging and charge monitoring circuits.
PEC offers E Beam welded current sensing resistors in different design shapes, multiple power and current ratings, different TCR ratings, for surface mounting. We also offer SMD foil resistors where a thin foil is bonded to a ceramic substrate for heatsinking.
