Stackpole has added a 2 watt size to their LCB Series of flameproof
low resistance value ceramic housed wirewound resistors. The LCBF2 adds to the broad line of current
sensing resistors from Stackpole. The CBF and LCBF2 resistors also provide housings with standoffs to
help reduce the temperatures seen by the PCB.
The welded wirewound resistive element is available in
values from 0.05 ohms to 0.33 ohms in 5% tolerance.
The LCB Series is a popular choice for a wide range of current sensing applications such as switching
power supplies, protection for TV’s, displays, and monitors, displays for white goods, and motor controls.
The LCBF Series is available in bulk packaging quantities of 2000 pieces. Pricing for the LCBF is $0.125
each in full package quantities.
