rod resistorsRod Resistors are available in a wide assortment of diameters and lengths to meet your application needs. Standard rod resistor applications include high power loads, snubber circuit RF power amplifiers, impulse voltage generators, high voltage circuits and power supplies, X-ray equipment, and dummy loads.  The ceramic composition tubes perform well where high peak power or high energy pulses are required to be handled. These non-inductive resistors are able to dissipate the energy uniformly through the entire resistor body. The rods are available with a number of terminations available to meet your connecting requirements including straight brass terminals or rounded edges.

Part Number plus the Resistance Code is used for specifying a particular part. The Resistance code is defined by the first two numbers of the resistance value, followed by a single number multiplier, and the resistance tolerance (20% is L, 10% is K, 5% is J). When the resistance is less than 10 ohms, the multiplier is not used and replaced by an “R”.

For example a 0.75” x 6.0” Resistor Rod at 50 ohms +/-10% would be qualified as 83-RD06-500K, and a 1.0” x 12.0 Resistor Rod at 15,000 ohms +/-20% would be 83-RE12-153L.
