(OAR) Open Air Metal Alloy Current Sense Resistor
The OAR devices with increased height improve cooling efficiency, and because many power supply designs are already tightly-packed at the PC board level, the additional height does not create any profile issues. The OAR series resistors feature a reduced pitch, or spacing between the leads on the circuit board with a corresponding increase in the board mounted profile.

(FL) Current Shunt Resistors
A wide range of precision shunts, designed for use with kilowatt-hour meters and other high-current applications where a high level of accuracy is required, is now available from Direct Electronics. Precision current shunts are low resistance resistors used to measure AC or DC electrical currents by the voltage drop those currents create across the resistance. Sometimes called an ammeter shunt, it is a type of current sensor.

(LSQ) 4-Terminal Current Sensing Resistor
Providing ultralow resistance values (to 0.01 ohm) for relatively high current requirements, new four-terminal cement filling resistors from Direct combine the advantages of a Kelvin configuration with PC board mounting capability. The Kelvin (or four-terminal) configuration enables current to be applied through two opposite terminals and a sensing voltage to be measured across the other two terminals, eliminating the resistance and temperature coefficient of the terminals for a more accurate current measurement.
