A power resistor is a resistor designed and manufactured to dissipate large amounts of power in a compact physical package. Generally speaking, they have a power rating of at least
Resistors are widely used in automobiles, consumer electronics, computers and peripherals, communications, green energy, medical instruments, precision instruments and aerospace equipments.
Resistors are often connected in series or parallel to create more complex networks. Which resistor network the designer choose, it depends on the actual application.
Ammeters are used to measure the AC or DC by measuring the voltage drop over a precision resistor with a known resistance. The current flow is calculated by using Ohm’s law.
MICROHM follows the new standards and requirements of ISO14001:2015 and ISO9001:2015 to prompt environment management level and system management level. After being strictly audited, the former version ISO14001:2004 and ISO9001:2008 certifications have been changed to new 2015 ones successfully.
A wire wound resistor is a resistor where a wire with a high resistivity is wrapped around an insulating core to provide the resistance. It is an electrical passive component that limits current.
GDPR refers to EU General Data Protection Regulation which renew the current EU laws and comes into effect on 25 May, 2018. GDPR aims at harmonize data protection compliance. It is going to re-define the control of how personal information/data is used and controlled both within the EU and worldwide. MICROHM renews its privacy protection rules to guarantee all customers' information.
In resistor industry, RJ refer to metal film resistor which is usually a cylindrical axial resistor ones. Other film type resistors are carbon film, thick and thin film resistors.
