RESISTORS

Type A Resistors

Air Cooled High Power Non-Reactive Cermet Resistors

  • Wide resistance range
  • Power ratings to 300kW* (up to 1,000 watts per square inch)
  • Extremely durable
  • Very low TCR: 100 ppm typical
  • Very stable: less than .4% change after 10 hours at rated power
  • Resistor is directly cooled by water (I.D. and O.D.)
  • Typical VSWR 1.1 to 1*
  • Low cost alumina substrate: power dissipation exceeds resistors built on BeO substrate and cooled from one side
  • Used by most water cooled RF termination manufacturers.

* In a properly designed system with proper water flow. Consult factory

Type CP Resistors
  • Standard size 10 watts to 1,000 watts in static air
  • VERY HIGH POWER DISSIPATION
  • Wide resistance range: 1 ohm to 20 meg ohms
  • High stability
  • Low TCR: less than 300 ppm typical
  • Superior terminals: platinum/silver offers much lower contact resistance than nickel or aluminum
  • Excellent moisture resistance
  • Excellent RF characteristics
  • May be used in place of other types of resistors
  • Close tolerances available
