The KAL Series from Stackpole is a wirewound resistor technology using a large ceramic core molded into an aluminum housing for superior heat transfer.

The KAL Series from Stackpole is a wirewound resistor technology utilizing a large ceramic core molded into an aluminum housing for superior heat transfer.  The KAL Series can be tailored to many different types of requirements such as low inductance, non-inductively wound, high surge, high voltage, and fusibility in addition to different types of terminations such as tabs, flying leads, and crimped connectors.  This versatility makes the KAL Series a popular choice for welding equipment, industrial controls, motor controls and drives, power supplies and power inverters, medical equipment, load dump resistors, laser controls, power line filters, and audio applications.

The KAL Series is available in 10W to 250W sizes, with tolerances as low as 0.1% and resistances from 0.05 ohms to 150 Kohms.  Pricing depends on size, tolerance, resistance and order volume, but typically runs from $0.91 each for the KAL 10 5% to $16.25 each for the KAL 250 5%.  Contact Stackpole or one of our valued franchised distributors for volume pricing.  Current lead-times are 8-10 weeks, with samples available in 4-6 weeks.  Many popular values and sizes are available in stock either directly through Stackpole or through online distribution.
