These Precision Shunt Resistors are designed for systems which have a fast changing electrical load. It has a Heatsink and is encapsulated in epoxy. The substrate is Alumina for Good Heat Transfer but with Electrical Insulation. It is a Resistor formed by a NiCr Foil. (Like Nichrome).

Precision Resistors - UNS 4-T220 - 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."

RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics

Some things you can find there -CB & Ham radios, Walkie-talkie (GMRS/FRS) radios and Shortwave & multiband radios

RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics

The company was started as Radio Shack in 1921 in Boston, Massachusetts, by two brothers, Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, who wanted to provide equipment for the cutting-edge field of amateur, or ham radio.



The first 40 years - RadioShack Corporation - Wikipedia

Theodore and Milton Deutschmann opened a one-store retail and mail-order operation in the heart of downtown Boston. They chose the name, "Radio Shack," which was a term for the small, wooden structure that housed a ship's radio equipment. The Deutschmanns thought the name was appropriate for a store that would supply the needs of radio officers aboard ships, as well as "ham" radio operators.
