New 600W aluminium nitride resistor from EBG

EBG has released a 600W version of the HXP thick film power resistor series. The HXP600 is capable of delivering 100% of its rated power at a bottom case temperature of 85°C. The non-inductive design makes the HXP series particularly well suited for high frequency and pulsed loading applications. Direct mounting on a heat sink means significant cost savings.

  • 1 x 600W, 2 x 240W or 3 x 135W operating power
  • Non-inductive design
  • Materials compliant with UL94 V-0


  • Resistance tolerance: +/- 5% to +/-10%
  • Temperature coefficient: +/-250ppm/°C (other on request)
  • Maximum working voltage: 500V DC (higher voltage on request)
  • Power rating: 600W at 85°C bottom case temperature
  • Electric strength voltage: Dielectric strength up to 4000V DC against ground
  • Isolation voltage between R1 and R2: 500V (1000V on special request)
  • Partial discharge: 2kVrms

Rated power (%) vs bottom case temperature (°C)


The main applications are speed drives, power supplies, control devices, telecoms, robotics, motor controls and other switching devices.

Multiple resistor configurations

A standard offering can include up to three resistors in the same package. Configurations of 4, 5 and 6 resistors are also available on special request. The maximum working voltage is 500V. The ohm values available are 0.15kΩ to 5kΩ with tolerances of +/- 10% to +/-5%.
