The PW and PWR series of power wire wound resistors, with high temperature ceramic shells and power ratings up to 60 W, are available in both axial and radial lead configurations. The resistors are specifically designed for power applications and are excellent at handling overloads. Applications include power electronics circuits as inrush, pulse or protection resistors; voltage dividers; bleeders; current limiters; and load banks. The units are specified in power supplies, motor controllers, and white goods applications. They are constructed using alloy resistance wire wound on fiberglass substrates, packaged in high temperature ceramic shells with fireproof inorganic encapsulate material.
