The RHX Series of ultra-precision resistors is manufactured with either thin or thick film technology based on resistance value. Encased in traditional transistor packaging to maximize heat transfer, our ultra-high precision resistors have been optimized in the widely used standard transistor packages TO-220 and TO-227.
Resistances are available from 0.02 Ohm up to 51k Ohm. This series features high power ratings of 35, 50 and 100 Watts. These power ratings combined with the small, thin profile design makes these pulse withstanding resistors an excellent choice for your high density, compact applications. Circuit designs with high stability requirements will benefit from the low resistance drift (Low TCR) of these ultra-high precision resistors.
