Chip Resistors Offer 1 Percent Tolerance With Precision and Pulse Withstanding
Wed, 07/06/2011 - 1:04pm
The RPC Series of film based chip resistors is available in a 1 percent tolerance with desirable pulse handling. This performance is achieved by using a robust film element with a limited laser trim. Trimming a chip resistor can greatly reduce the amount of pulse power that each size chip can handle and may lead to wide variations in surge handling from part to part. The RPC series has a tightly controlled laser trim yielding exceptional pulse handling characteristics that are very consistent. For select sizes and resistance values, the RPC is also available in 0.5 percent tolerances. The RPC Series is appropriate for power supply and motor startup applications where there is a significant power surge during power up and power down. It is also ideal for thermostats and HVAC controls, home entertainment and surveillance systems, fuel cell and alternative energy controls, industrial automation, LED Drivers, optical and vision systems, displays, and communication infrastructure.
