Ohmite Manufacturing Introduces TP810 High Energy Resistors


Arlington Heights, IL - Ohmite Manufacturing, a leading provider of thermal solutions and resistors for high current, high voltage, and high energy applications, announces the new TP Series of thick film, high energy resistors. These resistors offer users the benefits of non-inductive performance and high power density. As an added feature, they provide the impulse energy capability normally associated with wirewound or composition resistors. Double‐sided screen printing of pulse tolerant thick film ink, coupled with a sophisticated laser trimming process, maximize the energy withstanding capabilities of the TP Series.

Occupying very little PCB real estate, the easy-to-install TP810 (10 watt) is the first of a platform of high energy thick film resistors that Ohmite will be introducing. TP810 resistors are offered in 8 off‐the‐shelf resistance values ranging from 10‐10K ohms at 5% tolerance.

The TP810 resistors are ideal for surge protection in high power electrical devices and have been successfully tested at 100 Joules (watt/seconds) over a 100 millisecond pulse.
