Ohmite Intros High Energy Resistors
High energy resistor.
Arlington Heights, IL — Ohmite Manufacturing has introduced the TP Series of thick film, high energy resistors. These resistors offer users the benefits of non-inductive performance and high power density. As an added feature, they provide the impulse energy capability normally associated with wirewound or composition resistors.

The resistors' energy withstanding capabilities have been maximized double-sided screen printing of pulse tolerant thick film ink, coupled with a sophisticated laser trimming process.

Occupying very little PCB real estate, the easy-to-install TP810 (10 watt) is the first of a family of high energy thick film resistors that the company will be introducing. TP810 resistors are offered in 8 off-the-shelf resistance values ranging from 10 to 10kΩ at 5 percent tolerance.

The TP810 resistors are suitable for surge protection in high power electrical devices and have been successfully tested at 100 Joules (watt/seconds) over a 100 millisecond pulse.
