New high power wire wound tubular resistors

20 FEBRUARY 2009

The recently introduced range of high power tubular resistors from Tyco Electronics features a corrugated ribbon element on a ceramic core with a Mullite coating for a rapid cooling effect, enabling very good power handling capability from 50W up to 2500W. The new TE series resistors are designed for applications requiring stability, reliability and high performance. The devices are also ideal for heavy duty electrical and production machinery, motor control (motor start/ stop cycles) and load test simulation. TE series resistors feature resistance values from 1R0 up to 10K with a resistance tolerance of 5% (all devices from 50W up to 2500W) and also resistance values from R10 up to R99 with a resistance tolerance of 10% (50W, 60W and 80W components only). The components can provide a short time overload of three times rated wattage for five seconds and are designed for an operating temperature range from -25OC up to +225degC.
