Do You Have Over-Voltage Surge Problem?

Wirewound resistors, ideal at handling overvoltage surges, are often specified for the surge and overload conditions of harsh environments. The core of a wirewound resistor typically consists of fiberglass or a ceramic rod, with metallic wire wrapped around the...

Surge Resistors

What is a surge resistor? A surge resistor is a resistor installed in a circuit to prevent a “surge” when conditions arise where a surge might occur. There are a number instances where energizing a circuit is followed by a surge of current. Like almost all...
