Bourns CSS2H-2512 Current Sense Resistors

Bourns CSS2H-2512 Current Sense Resistors are manufactured using a metal element, have a resistance range of 2 to 6W, and offer 1.5 to 6W of power per resistor. These resistors detect and convert current to an easily measured voltage which is proportional to the current through the device. Bourns Current Sense Resistors offer high measurement accuracy and relatively low costs compared to other technologies.
