ARCOL’s APC Resistor has extremely tight tolerances

Ultra-tight tolerances down to ±0.01% have been achieved by using advanced thin film technology in ARCOL’s new APC Precision Chip resistor.

With an extremely low TCR, down to ±2ppm/°C and a wide resistance range from 1ohm to 3Megaohm, this latest addition to the ARCOL/Ohmite family of resistors embodies all the benefits and advantages of thin-film technology including high power handling, high stability, and low noise – making them ideally suited for applications such as medical equipment, testing and measurement equipment.

While suitable for a broad range of applications and end-products requiring high power and long-term reliability in a low-profile resistor, in those situations where a much smaller-sized resistor is required, ARCOL can also supply the APC in a miniature package for use in communications devices and other applications requiring smaller footprints.

The resistors are supplied in a choice of either tape or standard reel packaging.

The Power Dissipation is from 1/32 watt to 1/2 watt (see below) and the Maximum Voltage varies from 30V to 150V.
