Thick Film Pulse Resistors
TSEC work with customers to design and manufacture application specific thick film pulse resistors in low to medium volume. We design and manufacture both pulse power and pulse voltage resistor devices
A Pulse Resistor is specifically designed to absorb large amounts of energy and is often used in high reliability medical applications including X-Ray systems, displays and instruments. Pulse and transient waveforms require careful consideration before choosing a resistor device. Faced with imperfect information some designers over specify a resistor in the hope it will survive all expected pulse events but this approach increases resistor size, weight and cost. TSEC engineering team have many years experience of custom pulse resistor design and manufacture and are always available to offer design and application advice.
Resistance - Low Ohmic range typically 100 Ohms
Voltage maximum - 80,000V (as single element)
Temperature co-efficient (TCR) 100ppm/°C (for standard designs)
Tolerance ±1% (for standard designs)
Wattage Ranges low power to KWatts depending on resistive element
Pulse resistor design depends on the pulse energy and pulse duration. Current designs include 350 Joules inrush element on an increasing energy pulse with maximum energy reached in 3 seconds – equivalent to a peak power of 6.7Kwatts.
