One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive at Riedon, is whether  we can offer “Joule rated” or “pulse rated” resistors?  Electrical surges are a common failure mode for many types of resistors, and its essential to help our customers to evaluate the best possible surge protected resistor before specifying it for a particular application.

Please find a technical write up addressing this important issue – you can also find it on our website here:

Please review and let me know if you have any questions.
