Raleigh, N.C. Stackpole Electronics, Inc. has introduced a line of ceramic-housed, commercial-grade wirewound resistors with unique spade lead, PC-board mountable terminations. Standing high off the PC-board, these new PCB series resistors eliminate temperature concerns typically associated with power resistors.
The new PCB series resistors, manufactured with a flameproof construction, provide power ratings between 3 and 20 watts at 70°C, and are available from 0.1Ω to 1.25 KΩ with tolerances of 5% and 10%. These devices are also available with custom windings for special surge and pulse handling requirements.
The PCB series is RoHS compliant with lead-free 100% matte tin terminations. They may be used in industrial equipment, high-power power supplies, industrial power controls and motor controllers.
Offered in bulk packages ranging from 150- to 500-piece increments, the PCB series is typically priced at $0.20 in volume quantities. Delivery is from stock to six weeks.
