WWP Series Pulse Withstanding Wirewound Resistor

RALEIGH, NC (Jan. 5, 2018) – Stackpole’s WWP series of wirewounds offers guaranteed pulse handling for high energy handling requirements. Standard wirewounds exhibit variable pulse handling due to materials flexibility and trimming processes. The WWP series defines the element wire as robust as possible and does not require trimming. The result is a thru hole wirewound series with outstanding pulse handling that is very reliable and consistent and more repeatable than pulse handling film resistors.

ASR/ASRM Series for High Voltage Pulse Applications

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.

Stackpole's MELF Resistors Offer Lower Thermal Resistance

Stackpole's MLF / MLFM is a series of metal film, surface mount MELF resistors. The MELF technology provides cooler operating temperatures than flat chip resistors at full rated power. For example, the MLFM1 will typically run more than 70°C cooler than the equivalent 1W 2512 size flat chip resistor and has a smaller footprint. The cool operating performance is possible due to the cylindrical shape and solderable end caps of the MLF / MLFM.
