Low-profile wirewound resistors come in aluminum housing

Stackpole has released a new series of aluminum housed low profile wirewound resistors.

Dubbed the MHL series, these resistors are available in power ratings from 60W up to 1,000W, and are typically less than half the height of traditional aluminum housed wirewounds. They have standard lead wire terminations coming out of one end, and can also be provided with leads coming out of opposite ends or with quick connect tabs. The element is cemented into the aluminum case, which provides a flameproof part with high stability that is resistant to moisture and other harsh environmental conditions.

Applications include motor controls for elevators, escalators, and moving walkways, welding equipment, plasma cutters, power supplies, robotics, medical device power and control, drilling equipment, communication systems, and network equipment.

Pricing varies depending on size and tolerance and ranges from $5 each to $70 each in minimum quantities.
