Bourns, Inc. is a privately-owned manufacturer that specializes in circuit protection devices, position sensors, and passive components. The Riverside, California-based company maintains 15 manufacturing facilities in the Americas, Europe, and Asia and a workforce of over 7,000 employees. Established in 1947, the corporation has become an industry leader because of its commitment to providing customers with top quality, high-value products.
In its early days, Bourns operated out of a small garage and produced components for the then-burgeoning aerospace field. Now, the firm serves the automotive, communications, consumer electronics, industrial, and medical sectors. Over the last 73 years, the company’s catalog has expanded to include precision potentiometers, panel controls, resettable fuses, connectors, capacitors, indoor and outdoor pot splitters, network interface devices, transformers, and a wide range of circuit protectors.
In 1952, the company secured a patent for the Trimpot, the first-ever trimming potentiometer. Bourns continues to embody that innovative spirit by supporting a world-class research and development division and regularly making strategic acquisitions.
One of the firm’s most recent and sophisticated offerings is its Bourns Models CMP/CMP-A line of thick film resistors. The anti-surge devices offer a wide range of anti-surge protection from 1Ω to 1MΩ and a high-power rating of 1.5W. Made specifically to withstand the rigors of harsh environments, the component series is AEC-Q200 compliant and sulfur-resistant.
The manufacturer also expanded its rotary encoder portfolio to include the Model PEC11H. In response to customer requests, the quadrature output device features a high force detent mechanism to provide smooth tactile feedback. Boasting a 100,000 rotational cycle rating and temperature range of -25° to 70°, it is ideal for professional audio and lighting, low-risk medical, and lab equipment applications.
Bourns transformed from a humble family business to a global brand because providing exemplary customer service and product value serves as its north star.
