The SS conformally coated precision resistor network series from Alpha Electronics is fully customisable and offers excellent performance in TCR tracking, resistance ratio matching and stability thanks to Alpha’s Bulk Metal® foil resistor technology. The SS precision resistor network series can offer up to a maximum of 5 resistive elements. Each resistive element can range from 30Ω up to 20kΩ all with tight tolerances down to +0.05% absolute and +0.01% matching (the maximum total resistance for the network is 100kΩ).
- Fully customisable resistor network with up to 5 resistor elements and 5 different standard circuit layouts to choose from
- Each resistor element is available in any resistance between 30Ω and 20kΩ
- Maximum resistance value for complete resistor network of 100kΩ
- Through-hole conformally coated package
- Tight absolute tolerance of ±0.05% with an even tighter matching tolerance of ±0.01% available
- Tight absolute TCR of ±5 ppm/°C (from -25°C up to +125°C)
- Tight tracking TCR available of between ±1 ppm/°C and ±3 ppm/°C depending on resistance ratio (Rmax. / Rmin.)
- Power rating of 1W for the complete resistor package (at +70°C)
- Maximum rated operating temperature +70°C
- Working temperature from -25°C up to +125°C
The SS conformally coated, through-hole, precision resistor network series exhibits excellent high frequency characteristics thanks to Alpha’s Bulk Metal® foil resistor technology, making them suitable for the most demanding precision applications.
These resistors are fully customisable including the circuit layout. There are 5 standard circuit types available to choose from:
- Circuit layout A – resistor array
- Circuit layout B – independent resistors in the same package
- Circuit layout C – divider network
- Circuit layout E – circuit layout A split into 2 i.e. 2 separate resistor arrays
- Circuit layout F – circuit layout C split into 2 i.e. 2 separate divider networks
