New Vishay Intertechnology HVPS Through-Hole Single-in-Line Thin Film Resistors Offer High Working Voltage to 1800 V

Precision Devices Combine High Resistance Values to 10 Megohms With Tolerances Down to 0.01 % and TCR of 5 ppm/ Degrees C

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new series of through-hole single-in-line thin film resistors. For high accuracy in precision, high-voltage instrumentation and amplifiers, the Vishay Dale Thin Film HVPS devices feature high resistance values to 10 megohms, tight tolerances down to 0.01 %, and high working voltages to 1800 V.

The resistors released today combine their high working voltage with stable film characteristics of 0.05 % for 2,000 hours at +70 °C, ultra-low TCR of 5 ppm/°C, and a wide resistance range of 50 kilohms to 10 megohms. Offering a conformal coating, the devices are optimized for high-voltage telecommunication, industrial, and test and measurement applications.

HVPS devices feature very low noise of less than -30 dB, low thermal EMF of less than 0.1 microvolts/°C, high power ratings up to 400 mW, and a temperature range of -55 °C to +125 °C. Available with lead-bearing and lead (Pb)-free options, the resistors are halogen-free and flame-resistant in accordance to UL 94 V-0.

Samples and production quantities of the HVPS resistors are available now, with lead times of eight weeks.
