When considering all your resistive needs it can be important to understand the basics about each type of resistor and, in general, how it is designed. The wirewound resistors designed and manufactured by Riedon are world class. This matters when it comes to being able to rely on good circuitry within any given electronic device. The basic wirewound resistor is constructed with a highly resistive wire that is, as the name suggests, wrapped around an insulating core. This is how resistance is provided in the design of the wirewound resistor.
Not all wirewound resistors are manufactured in the same way or with the same materials. The choices involving manufacturing and materials vary depending upon how the circuit needs to be designed. The circuit design determines how the wirewound resistors will be used. One thing that stays constant, no matter the design of the device is that winding the needed wire around the core makes the resistor a wirewound resistor.
The parameters of the wirewound resistor, such as the resistivity of the wire in use, can be tightly controlled. This makes it possible to design highly precise wirewound resistors for your technological needs. In general it is true that wirewound resistors fulfill the requirement of producing lower resistance values in the end. Adjustments can be made in the design of the wirewound resistor, such as; thinner wire when only low power will be in use.
The experts with Riedon understand the importance of all the parameters involved with the process of making optimal wirewound resistors. The type of wire used is also an important consideration. For example the temperature coefficient of resistance would be much higher if pure metals were used. This is the reason why many wirewound resistors are manufactured with alloys and not pure metals. If there is a need for high temperature performance there are good options for the wirewound resistor design.
