Utility supplies: Thick film resistors for wide range of applications

utility supplies utility testing utility equipment Arcol Resistors

Utility equipment: The ARC series of versatile, high-quality, non-inductive, high voltage, thick film resistors available from ARCOL Resistors are suitable for a wide range of applications including test and measuring equipment, HV power supplies, high specification instrumentation, voltage dividers, measuring equipment, electrostatic and current limiting devices.

Three versions are available with the ARC1 type being a space saving planar design offering users a choice of axial or radial assembly and either conformal or glass coatings. The ARC1 series have resistors with voltage handling capability of up to 35kVdc and has an operating temperature range of -55°C to +175°C. The ARC2 and ARC3 are radial designs with operating temperatures from -55°C to +225°C. The ARC2 has a maximum operating voltage of 54 kVdc, while the ARC3 reaches 96 kVdc.

The ARC1 has an ohmic value range from 1K‡ to 30G‡ and a maximum power of 10W, the ARC2 offers ohmic values from 400R‡ to 30G‡ at up to 17W and the ARC3 has values from 2R‡ to 25G‡ and a maximum available commercial wattage of 105W these values are available across a variety of TCR and tolerance options. Like all ARCOL products the ARC series of resistors are RoHS compliant.

ARCOL offers one of the widest ranges of resistors available to electronics designers and manufacturers including the HS aluminium housed high power range, vitreous enamel coated types, the MSR series of bare element resistors, the RWS precision power wirewound SMD resistor family, axial thin film, silicon coated types and precision passivated chip resistors and resistor packs.

Typical applications include traction, snubbers, switched mode power supplies and non-inductive resistors for high frequency and pulse applications.
