TTI supplies Vishay GBS series vitreous resistors
Vishay’s GBS series vitreous resistors with corrugated ribbon can now be sourced in Europe through TTI, the specialist distributor of electronic components.
The GBS series of vitreous wirewound resistors has a welded construction and can be used to provide high continuous power dissipation up to 1000W. High pulse power capability makes the devices suitable for inrush limiters. Designed for harsh environments, GBS series vitreous resistors are robust, with a lifetime of more than 20 years, says TTI. Within the GBS series, an adjustable type (E) is also available.
Features for the resistors include a high power rating of up to 100W. With different corrugated ribbons and turn spacings, low ohmic values of less than one Ohm can be offered. Thanks to a vitreous coating, the GBS series resistors are stable over an extended lifetime, and boast enhanced humidity protection. The coating is also resistant to all cleaning chemicals commonly used in the electronics industry, says TTI.
Typical applications for the GBS series include heating elements in railway applications, inrush current limiter for DC-Link capacitors, braking resistors for drive systems, chopper resistor for large drives, load bank for continuous power applications, filter resistor, drive systems, power supplies, frequency inverters, AC filters and snubber resistors. The corrugated ribbon enables the resistors to be used as heating elements in other applications.
