UK-based ARCOL Resistors is increasing the availability of their power and specialist resistor range worldwide through closer cooperation with RS Components, widely recognised as the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products.
The latest ARCOL Resistor types to be added to the RS Components product range are the market leading RWS7 and RWS10 surface-mount resistors which have been uniquely designed to meet the rising power requirements for surface mount components.
The 7-watt RWS7 has a value range from R1 to 5K and the 10 watt RWS10 is available from R1 to 10K. Both types feature an optimized thermal design for greater efficiency, improved surge capacity and overload characteristics. TCR options available are ±20ppm/°C, ±50ppm/°C, or ± 90ppm/°C depending on resistor value.
Mike Pritchard, Commercial Director of ARCOL Resistors, comments,” With operations in 32 countries and market-leading suppliers from across the globe RS Components will play a major role in extending our market reach. Their innovative online sourcing solutions and DesignSpark electronics design software will provide ARCOL with unrivalled sales opportunities.”
ARCOL Products already available from RS Components include the market leading high power HS aluminium housed resistors, the AP725 20W D²PAK packaged resistors, MRA metal film resistors, MSR bare element resistors, RCC carbon composition resistors and ACPP precision passivated chip resistors.
Mike Pritchard continues,” We are continually working with RS Components to ensure they have the stock profile their customers require. Customers looking for stock of our products at RS can use our simple to use “stock locator” which is easy to access from our homepage and allows customers to find available stock of any resistor available via distribution. Powered by the proven netComponents global electronic component database, users may refine their search by geographic region and complete or partial part number.”
ARCOL offer one of the widest ranges of resistors available to electronics designers and manufacturers including the market leading HS aluminum housed high power range, the MSR series of bare element resistors, the RWS precision power wirewound SMD resistor family, axial thin film, silicon coated types and precision passivated chip resistors and resistor packs.
Typical applications include traction, snubbers, switched mode power supplies and non-inductive resistors for high frequency and pulse applications,
