Metal Film Reistor Carries 1/2 W In 1/8 W Package

Stackpole now offers the RNS Series axial leaded ultra mini metal film resistors with a ½ watt (0.5 W) power rating in a traditional 1/8 watt (0.125W) axial leaded resistor package size. This complements the 1 W and 2 W parts previously available. The RNS is able to achieve this high power handling performance through tight manufacturing control of a unique power film alloy. The standard flameproof silicone coating enhances its usefulness at high power levels. In addition, the RNS series is capable of precision tolerances down to 0.5% and TCR's as low as 25 ppm.

Markets and Applications:

·     Designs that require downsizing or added features

·     New designs that require the smallest form factor possible for a given power rating

·     Home appliances

·     Solid state power supplies

·     Instrumentation

·     Safety equipment

·     Welding systems

·     Robotics

·     Industrial power and control

Pricing will vary depending on size, tolerance, and TCR and ranges from $0.015 to $0.045 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributors for volume pricing.
