Vishay Power Resistors Cooled by Auxiliary Heatsink RCMW 650
WHAT IT IS & WHAT IT DOES:
High Power Thick film Power resistors are passive devices designed to be heatsink mounted. They are non-inductive, low profile & totally insulated. Their global performances, a lot higher than traditional Power resistors allow to save space in equipment due to their high power/volume ratio. Depending on derating rules and on cooling system (Metal plate or heatsink) these resistors will dissipate up to 650W @85°C bottom case in a super low-profile package 13mm thick.
High Power Resistor up to 650 Watt at 85°C Bottom case temperature.

APPLICATIONS/MARKET SEGMENTS (EXAMPLES):
– Discharge for Inverter & Converter
o The resistor is connected permanently to discharge capacitors. The main requirements are high power and high voltage capability. Reliability is mandatory as it is a safety function.
– Balancing for Inverter
o Balancing resistor is used when capacitors are in series to limit the maximum voltage on capacitors and protect them by don’t exceeding their voltage ratings.
– Precharge for Converter
o The resistor is used to limit the inrush current when voltage is applied to capacitors. The main requirements are high energy and high voltage capability.
– Snubber for Inverter
o Snubber resistor is used to discharge the capacitor and avoid a sharp rise of voltage.
