Obsolete Resistor Replacement

TSEC design and manufacture form fit and function replacements for obsolete resistor devices. We offer a fast turnaround service and deliver in low to medium quantity.

We deliver replacements for devices made obsolete by resistor manufacturers such as Bourns, Metalux and Ohmite, among others. The cost of a custom resistor can often be significantly lower than the cost of original product offered by component dealers or brokers.

Resistor Obsolescence Challenges

The high volume manufacturers of standard resistor devices are under constant pressure to cut costs and streamline their product line ups. As a result Resistor devices may become obsolete or difficult to source at short notice.

Production shortages of resistor devices may delay delivery of equipment. Customer relationships may be damaged and company financial performance compromised.

TSEC can manufacture replacements for obsolete resistor devices on short timescales keeping production running until a long term replacement can be found. Our flexible approach to resistor design and manufacture means we can still manufacture resistor products first introduced over 30 years ago.

Thick film resistors have excellent thermal performance, they are reliable and space efficient. The technology is relatively cheap to tool with product manufactured on short leadtimes. A wide range of footprints is available including leaded, surface mount, through hole or vertical in line.
