BEC Distribution (UK), ARCOL's Premier UK Distributor has announced the availability of ARCOL's AP101 and AP140 non-inductive resistors which feature extremely low thermal resistance. They AP101 is capable of dissipating 100 watts and the AP140 can dissipate up to 140 watts, with a maximum current rating of 25A. Other features include:

  • Power dissipation of 140 watts, resulting in a maximum tab temperature of just 25°C (with a heat sink).
  • TO-247-Style packaging, utilising state-of-the art Thick Film technology.
  • A single screw mounting to the heat sink and a moulded, electrically-isolated case for enhanced electrical and mechanical protection.
  • A value range of up to R01 – 51K.
  • Tolerance options of ±1% or ±5% and.
  • TCR options of ±50 – 250ppm/°C (re ohmic value).
  • Maximum voltage of 700Vdc or √(P.R).
  • Dielectric strength of 2500 Vac (60 secs).
