Resistors with stable, predictable, and fixed resistance
A fixed resistor does not vary its resistance value, either by design or in response to the environment around it. Whether a circuit needs precision, high power capacity or a combination of both, the fixed resistor is a vital component in every electronic design. We offer a wide range of fixed resistor types, including chassis mount, surface mount, and through-hole resistors.
Different types of fixed resistors deliver different characteristics, and it is important for designers to understand the demands of their application. If large amounts of energy need to be handled, resistors using wirewound construction or thick film techniques offer high power capacity. However, for situations requiring precision and stability, thin film or metal foil resistors are effective choices. Whether a circuit needs precision, high power capacity or a combination of both, the fixed resistor is a vital component in every electronic design. Every sector, from consumer goods to heavy industry, relies on the fixed resistor.
Choosing Power Resistors
Power resistors protect technology by converting large amounts of energy into heat that can be dissipated. Designing your devices for long-term reliability requires power resistors that can withstand performance requirements. Learn how you can select the right power resistor for your design.
