Product Details

LPS300 Series 300 W Thick Film Power Resistor

LPS300 series 300 W thick film power resistors for mounting onto a heatsink. These LPS300 power resistors have a rating of 300 W at 85°C bottom case temperature, a low thermal radiation of the case and offer a wide resistance range from 0.3 to 900 kΩ.

Power at 85°C 300 W  
Resistance Tolerance 5 %  
Temperature Coefficient 1U < R ≤ 10U 300ppm/°C
  10U < R 150ppm/°C
Operating Temperature -50 → 120 °C  
Thermal Resistance 0.112 °C/W  
Limiting Element Voltage 5 kV  
Insulating Resistance ≥ 104  
Inductance ≤ 0.1 μH  
Dimensions 60 x 57 x 25.2 mm  

Non-Inductive - Heatsink Mountable

Virtually non-inductive, thick film power resistors designed for direct heatsink attachment and ideal for installation where easy connection in a limited space is required.
A specially formulated cermet film is deposited onto a high purity alumina substrate and housed in a hard epoxy moulding into which the terminals are integrated.
Values of 1Ω and below have 4 terminals to permit voltage sensing; all other values have 2 terminals
Applications include circuits where low inductance, high frequencies and pulse overloads are key parameters.
Application note: derate linearly from full power at 25°C for 25 and 50W types and 70°C for 100 and 250W types to zero at 125°C. For best heat transfer it is suggested that a heat compound is applied between the alumina bottom surface and the heatsink chassis/surface.

Key Characteristics
Overload duration RCH25 RCH50 BDS100 BDS250
1 sec. 375W 750W 200W 1500W
2 sec. 300W 600W 150W 1250W
5 sec. 125W 250W 125W 1000W
10 sec. 75W 150W 100W 750W
For each degree the ambient temperature is raised above 25°C, there is a reduction by 1% of the permitted overload.
The key characteristics table is only applicable to resistors suitably mounted on a heatsink with a thermal resistance of 1°C/W for 25 and 50W ratings, 0.7°C/W for 100W and 0.28°C/W for 250W ratings.
This data is only valid when thermal grease is used and the resistor is correctly tightened by mounting screws.
