Wirewound Resistor Family Adds 7W/10W Sizes

The VM Series vertical-mount ceramic wirewound resistors now include 7W and 10W sizes. In addition to taking up less board space than many other high power resistors, the vertical-mount package reduces the amount of heat forced into the PCB. Finally, the ceramic and cement package is completely flameproof. Available in bulk packaging ranging from 250 to 1500 pieces depending on size, pricing varies with size and ranges from $0.10 to $0.30 each in minimum quantities.
