RALEIGH, NC (Oct. 17 , 2017) – Stackpole’s ASR / ASRM series anti-surge thru-hole resistors offer high voltage pulse handling and defined pulse power characteristics. From the ASRM14 1/4W size rated at 500V to the ASRM1 1W and ASRM2 2W both rated at 4KV, this series is a great choice for high voltage applications requiring a robust cost effective axial leaded resistor. In addition, this series offers pulse voltage handling ranging from 2KV for the ASRM14 to 10KV for the ASRM1 and ASRM2.

Applications for the ASR / ASRM include HVAC controls, appliance and white goods controls, power control and monitoring, metering, automation, medical devices, digital storage, and surge and lightning protection.

Pricing for the ASR / ASRM depends on size, resistance value, and ranges from $0.045 to $0.113 in full package quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distribution partners for volume pricing.
