Stackpole Electronics Inc. has launched the RWT Series, its thermal-fusing, ceramic-housed, vertical-mount wirewound resistors designed to protect against the effects of switching power supply in video displays.

The series features a 142C one- time thermal fuse for accurate, precise and fail-safe operation while ensuring that PCB temperatures remain at safe levels. The ceramic housing design of the product makes sure that there will be no exposed metal or debris remaining after fusing. It's all-welded constructions provides surge handling capability.

The RWT Series 5 size is recognized by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and is CSA certified.

The series is recommended for use in many types of switching power supply applications and as a power solution for LCD displays and monitors, radios and communication devices. It could also be used for small motor control protection in appliances and in automotive applications.

The RWT Series is available in bulk packaging in quantities that vary depending on size and range from 800-1,500 pieces. Pricing for the RWT in full bulk package quantities also depends on size and ranges from $0.30 to $0.36 each.
