Bradford, PA, September 9, 2016- KOA Speer Electronics expands the resistance values of the 1206 size TLR2B/2BW metal plate chip current sense resistors, available now in 1mΩ and 1.5mΩ. The power rating for the 1206 chip size TLR2B is 0.5Watt and TLR2BW is 1Watt. These resistors feature a metal alloy to provide superior corrosion and heat resistance, with a small size surface mount type metal plate providing low resistance for current detection.

KOA Speer’s TLR2B/2BW resistor has a TCR of ±75 ppm with a 1% resistance tolerance and an operating temperature range of -65°C ~ +170°C and are AEC-Q200 qualified.

Used primarily for current detection, TLR current sense resistors are ideal for transportation, industrial, telecommunications and consumer electronics markets, in applications such as DC-to-DC power converters, power supplies, computing devices, tablets, and automotive electronics.
