Anti-moisture Thru-hole Resistors

Anti-moisture thru-hole resistors represent an important segment of the resistor market. There are many designs that require resistors to perform in high humidity environments and engineers need the mechanical stability and thermal characteristics of a thru-hole connection. We will examine the most common products for these requirements and discuss the benefits of using each for a given application.

RC Series Carbon Composition Resistors for Non-Inductive Pulse Handling

The RC series of carbon composition axial leaded resistors is an outstanding choice for high speed or high energy pulse handling requirements. The large mass of the carbon resistive element efficiently dissipates high energy surge events while the almost negligible inductance allows for higher switching speeds than comparable wirewound resistors. Carbon Comps remain a favorite choice for switch mode power supplies as well as many other snubber and energy dumping applications. The RC is also a popular choice for surge withstanding in meters and data collection devices as well as a variety of lighting products.
