Resistors Raise Voltage Bar

Eliminating the need for multiple parts or more expensive configurations, the MG series high-voltage, metal-glaze axial-lead resistors feature small size and both high voltage and resistance values. The components provide voltage specs of 1.6 kV, 2 kV, and 3.5 kV and power ratings of 0.25W, 0.5W, 1W, and 2W with tolerances to 1% and temperature coefficients of 200 ppm. These voltage levels are said to be two-to-three times greater than the highest working voltage of standard or pulse-rated leaded resistors. Accordingly, a single MG resistor can replace two or three other resistors, reducing total manufacturing cost while also cutting the size and weight of the end product. Typical pricing ranges from $0.04 to $0.20 each with a lead-time of eight weeks. STACKPOLE ELECTRONICS INC., Raleigh, NC. (919) 850-9500.
