TTI to carry Ohmite MIL-R-39005 qualified "RBR" resistors



TTI, a leading specialist distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components, has been appointed by Ohmite as exclusive worldwide distributor for its new series of Mil-R-39005 qualified resistors. Ohmite selected TTI in recognition of its strength in the military resistor market and the strong partnership between the two companies. Ohmite's new Mil-R-39005 qualified series is a bobbin wound resistor designed for the ultra-precision military market for through-hole applications and marks Ohmite's entry into the $2M RBR market. The company has produced its successful HPW Series, the commercial equivalent of RBR resistors, since its acquisition of Vishay Ultronix in 2007. Dean Rambo, Ohmite Director of Sales North America comments: "We are excited to be entering the RBR market and especially to be able to support our military customers through our exclusive two year distribution deal with TTI. We chose TTI as the strongest global distributor in this sector - it offers first-class customer support and will have the benefit of being backed by our own team of technical and sales experts". The new Ohmite HPW Mil-R-39005 Series is available to advance order now from TTI for shipment in early in Q1 2014. TTI
