This release in:

MALVERN, Pa. — Oct. 30, 2014 —Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH) today introduced a new series of silicone-coated, axial lead wirewound resistors. Providing superior short-term surge protection compared to standard wirewound devices, Vishay Dale CW-High Surge series resistors combine high voltage surge immunity up to 12kV with high-temperature operation +350 C in a high-reliability design.

CW-High Surge resistors provide overload and high surge voltage protection in accordance to IEC 61000-4-5 (1.2 μs/50 μs) requirements for power supplies, metering and welding equipment, power tools, and appliances in a wide range of applications. The devices offer a rugged, completely welded construction for increased reliability, while their high-temperature silicone coating allows for operating temperature ranges of -65 C to +250 C (characteristic U) and -65 C to +350 C (characteristic V).

The compact resistors provide high power ratings from 1 W to 13 W at 25 C and 2000-hour load-life stability of less than 3 % at +25 C. The devices offer resistances from 0.1 Ω to 167 kΩ, with tolerances of 3 %, 5 % and 10 %, and TCR of 90 ppm/C for resistance below 0.99 Ω, 50 ppm/C for resistance from 1.0 Ω to 9.9 Ω, and 30 ppm/C for resistance of 10 Ω and above.

The CW-High Surge series is available with both lead (Pb)-free and tin/lead terminations.
