The TL Series add heat sinkable options to the thick film resistor family. The resistor element is packaged with plastic insulators, and quickconnect terminals in a symmetrical aluminum profile for easy heat sink mounting. Special tapped configurations are offered to reduce on board component count. Efficient thermal packaging provides improved heat conduction to the heat sink. Self-insulating package design increases voltage withstanding characteristics when compared to traditional aluminum housings. The in line mounting profile makes the TL Series easily adaptable to most heat sink systems. Thermal compound is always recommended when heat sinking.
