Addressing the needs of sustainable and reusable power development, Ohmite has extended the power and resistance ranges of its heatsinkable, thick film resistors. Not only has Ohmite added the 2000 W TAP power resistor family to address these needs, they have also released and made standard the 0.25Ω, 0.33Ω, and 0.50Ω versions of their TAP600 and TAP800 products at 10 percent tolerance.
These TAP2000 power resistors are suitable for applications such as the manufacture of fuel cells and inverters (DC to AC) as well as charge controllers used in photovoltaic and wind power systems. The TAP2000 series delivers 2000 W of continuous power when properly mounted to a liquid cooled heat sink (based on 85°C mounting plate temperature).
