Thick film chip resistors boost pulse handling
STACKPOLE RPC series Pulse Withstanding Thick Film Chip Resistors have limited trim lengths for 1% and tighter tolerances and no calibration trim for 5% and wider tolerances. Reducing or eliminating the calibration trim allows devices to withstand significantly higher pulse energy in both single pulse and continuous pulse applications. For example, device may have single pulse handling of roughly 4500W for short pulse durations where commodity thick film chips will only withstand 100 to 500W. Product’s pulse handling is reliable and repeatable. Available in popular sizes and resistance values.
