Power Resistor Basics

The device designed for limiting the flow of current is known as resistor.

Resistors designed for high power application are referred as power resistors. Following are the typical features of such resistors.

•  Manufactured using cermet thick film technology
•  High power ratings from 5 to 50 Watt
•  High overload capabilities
•  High insulation
•  High thermal capacity
•  Housed in aluminium

The popular categories of power resistors are metal clad braking, silicon coated resistors and other customized resistors. Also refer resistor basics for more information about discrete resistors.
