Precision Resistors - UNS 4-T220 - Riedon



Precision Resistors - UNS 4-T220 - Foil NiCr - Riedon



Specifications


  • Resistance from 0.2 Ohm to 80 Ohms

  • Power Rating to 15 Watts

  • Resistance Tolerances to ±0.01%

  • TCR to ±1ppm/K

  • Load Stability to 0.01%


Resistors are probably the most common and well known of all electrical components. Applying a resistor to a circuit normally requires (1) calculating the nominal values needed in the circuit application (resistance, power rating, etc.) then (2) developing acceptable tolerances for the resistor that ensure it will function properly in all extremes of the application.



Read up the "Temperature dependence and TC" - The absolute ohmic value of a resistor is temperature-dependent. Also the "Definition of terms in the specifications of Resistors."

WIMA - Specialized and Custom Capacitors

Wilhelm Westermann in Unna/Westphalia in 1948 created and established WIMA Germany. They make High Technology, Specialized Passive Components. These are Plastic film capacitors, Paper capacitors and Supercapacitors.


GTO Capacitors - WIMA


WIMA - Specialized and Custom Capacitors


The capacitors that need special mention are RFI and Snubber Capacitors. They also make Intermediate Circuit Capacitors or DC-Link capacitors, that can replace Electrolytics in SMPS or DC/AC Drives.


These capacitors are especially designed to attenuate voltage spikes on GTO (Gate-Turn-Off) Thyristors and IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor). They are manufactured in dry-type technology with a dielectric of metalized polypropylene film and encapsulated in a cylindrical plastic case sealed with self-extinguishing polyurethane resin.


These caps have Very low self-inductance and High pulse reliability (snubber). High rms current carrying capability (HF filter). Value Ratings upto 100uF and 1KV available.


SuperCapacitors - WIMA


GTO Capacitors - WIMA


The Double Layer Capacitors developed by WIMA are storage capacitors with highest capacitance values in the Farad range. They are among others suited to serve as batteries, can deliver considerably higher currents for a short time, however, and are maintenance free.


SuperCapacitors - WIMA


Despite the limitations of its maximum operating voltage of 2.5 V, several cells can be built up to enormous capacitance of the desired voltage by means of series or parallel connection (cascade). When cascading SuperCaps, the voltage of single cells must not exceed 2.5 V (decomposition of the electrolyte!)
