The RHC2512 from Stackpole is a high power 2 W rated 2512 size chip resistor with much lower heat rise compared to other high power chip resistors currently available. Stackpole utilizes a unique set of materials, part design, and manufacturing processes to lower the self-heating of the part by at least 30 °C.
The RHC2512 is available in values from 0.1 Ω s up to 1 MΩ in 1% and 5% tolerances and TCR of 100 ppm.
The RHC Series can be used in a wide range of applications, including professional, commercial, and industrial power systems; control systems; and industrial and commercial automation. The RHC Series is also well suited for medical applications such as physical therapy equipment, biomed, fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and dispensing equipment. The RHC may be used for audio applications, high-speed communication, thermostats and HVAC, metering, monitoring, and detection, as well as for avionics and instrumentation.
Pricing varies with resistance value and tolerance, and ranges from $0.185 to $0.35 each in full reel quantities.
