ARCOL – The Global Resistor Specialist
ARCOL’s resistor product range reflects our wealth of industry experience. We understand that each resistive product must be manufactured to the highest of standards to your needs and that of your application. If we don’t have the resistive products you require, our team of engineers will design and build bespoke products to satisfy your individual specifications.
Aluminum Housed Heatsink Resistors
Globally the No 1 range of aluminium housed power resistors ranging from 10 watts to 300 watts. They are manufactured to meet the requirements of MIL 15546 and IEC 115 and are of course RoHS compliant. Designed for direct heatsink mounting with thermal compound to achieve maximum performance.
Low-inductance, ultra low-profile, high-power resistors
The TFBR series is manufactured using cutting-edge film technology, offering low inductance characteristics, making the power resistors particularly suitable to high-frequency applications. The resistors incorporate innovative packaging design, providing a high power density in a very low-profile package. The substrate thickness is a tiny 1.0 ±0.2 mm. 100W to 900W versions.
Highest-power and best heat-reduction SMD resistors commercially available today
ARCOL has introduced a new range of SMD resistors which have been uniquely designed to meet the needs of the ever-increasing power requirements of resistors in surface mount applications. At 10W the RWS10 is the highest-power SMD resistor on the market today. The RWS7 is rated at 7W. The thermal design has been optimised to provide a greater heat-reduction efficiency.
ADS – Silicone Coated Axial Resistor
The ADS conformal silicone-ceramic coated resistor offers good power density, stability & durability, applications include industrial & medical, used to control inrush currents, capacitor charge & discharge, as a bleeder/balancing resistor. ARCOL’s full range of power resistors includes SMD resistors, wirewound resistors and metal-housed resistors.
AP101 and AP140 Thick-Film TO-247 Resistors
The AP101 and AP140 thick-film power resistors combine high power density with a non-inductive design. The power range is 100 watts and 140 watts at a 25°C case temperature when heat-sink mounted. The TO-247 style power package incorporates a single-screw heat-sink mounting. The power resistors are RoHS Compliant.
V-Series Resistors: high reliability to withstand adverse conditions
The ARCOL V-Series of Vitreous Enamelled Resistors are designed for high reliability, to withstanding adverse conditions. They are suitable for low-inductance, high-level pulse applications. The nickel-chrome winding is protected by several coats of enamel, which has been fired to produce a high-reliability resistor.
Low-profile, metal-clad power resistors with high pulse capacity
ARCOL Resistors has introduced a new range of low-profile, metal-clad Power Resistors. The new ARF series has high Pulse Capacity characteristics: the Pulse Power overload is 10xP,5sec which make the resistors ideally suited to braking and inverter / converter applications. The ARF series incorporates innovative packaging design resulting in a very low-profile package.
