Wirewound Temperature Sensing

Wirewound Temperature Sensing

Wirewound Temperature Sensing Resisors Many of Riedon’s Temperature sensing Wirewound products are available in special high Temperature Coefficients of Resistance (TCR), ideal for use in temperature sensing applications. Wirewound temperature sensors provide the most...

Thin Film Resistor Construction and Properties

Thin Film Resistors Thin film resistors are built on a ceramic base, with the resistive layer sputtered on top using vacuum deposition to create a chip resistor. The material used is commonly an alloy of nickel and chrome called Nichrome. The thickness of the film...

Precision or Power?

Resistors are often designated as precision or power. Precision resistors are designed for applications where tight resistance tolerance and stability are primary considerations, and they generally have restricted operating temperature limits and power dissipation...

Custom Designs? We build to order!

Custom Resistors For Your Next Project Riedon can modify existing power resistor designs to fit many special applications. For example, it is relatively easy to imbed one of our standard wirewound power resistors into a custom case. Our custom capability is somewhat...
