Thick Film High Voltage Resistor Manufacturer
We design and manufacture application specific thick film high voltage resistor product in low to medium volume. We understand you don't want to compromise by simply using an off the shelf resistor that does not match the exact specification but is the closest available fit. In many applications the risk of a resistor performance issue causing system failure is a risk that cannot be tolerated.
We have many years’ experience designing custom high voltage resistor products for a wide range of high power applications and retain a detailed understanding of thick film resistor technology, manufacturing and application issues.
The main application for thick film high voltage resistors is sensitive circuit protection elements in power supplies but other applications include medical devices, military systems (RADAR, SONAR), Anti-static systems, motor control, high voltage resistor divider circuits and balancing and emitter resistors.
High Voltage Resistor Manufacturing Capability
We manufacture application specific resistor product in the U.K in low to medium volume.
Resistance - Ohmic Ranges 1 Ohm to 1,000 MOhms
Voltage maximum 80,000Volts (as single element)
Temperature co-efficient (TCR) 100ppm/°C (for standard designs)
Tolerance ±1% (for standard designs)
Wattage Ranges from low power (Watts) to KWatts depending on resistive element
The above applies for standard designs. By utilising specialised materials, manufacturing and test processes we believe we may manufacture a suitable high voltage resistor product for any application. We work with system designers to understand the nature of the application before starting the resistor design process. An analysis of data sheet parameters alone is rarely sufficient to ensure long term reliable performance. Ambient temperature, moisture levels, mechanical stress, handling, overvoltage and surge conditions can all have an impact on in circuit resistor performance.
