Riedon's Resistors for Medical Market
High performance resistors are key to meeting the demanding requirements of portable medical electronics designs
(October 7, 2016) - Aside from low resistance value, the key requirements for a current sensing resistor are accuracy and stability, across all operating conditions and over time. Riedon offers a number of different types of current sensing and shunt resistors for various applications. For medical applications such as blood pressure monitoring, Riedon particularly recommends either its CSR surface mount series or its through-hole mounting MSR series.
The performance requirements for Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) can be addressed by various types of resistors offered by Riedon. The UT series of wirewound resistors is capable of handling 1000 Joules and provides the necessary pulse handling capability. The THE thick-film range provides a non-inductive axial-leaded design with a voltage rating up to 48kV, power ratings from 0.7 to 17W and resistances from 1kO to 100MO.
