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.

Stackpole's Non-Inductive Wirewounds for Inductance Sensitive Applications

RALEIGH, NC (June 21, 2017) -- Stackpole's NWW non-inductive wirewound resistor series is ideal for applications requiring low inductance. Although inductance can never be fully eliminated in a wirewound resistor, the Ayrton-Perry winding technique reduces the inductance by up to 5 times that of a standard wirewound resistor, making this technology usable in high frequency and high switching applications.
