MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGY Littelfuse unveils SSA series current shunt resistor solution for high performance current sensing
Littelfuse, Inc., an industrial technology manufacturing company, announced the launch of its SSA Series Current Shunt Resistors-the first of its kind in the Littelfuse portfolio. These two-terminal, ultra-low resistance shunt resistors are uniquely designed to meet the increasing demand for accurate current measurement in high-performance applications.
Unlike competing technologies such as Hall effect sensors, current transformers, flux gate sensors, and Rogowski coils, the Littelfuse Current Shunt Resistor delivers a more efficient solution that works well in both AC and DC circuits. With a higher power rating than metal foil resistors, the SSA Series excels in applications demanding rigorous current sensing due to high-power requirements.
This versatility makes it an ideal choice for a wide range of markets and applications, including:
- Automotive electronics
- EV charging
- Large appliances
- Data centers
- Power modules
- Frequency converters
