Stackpole offers one of the broadest resistive product lines in the industry. Not only does it cover all major technologies of commodity resistors, but also offers a wide variety of less common resistors. For example, Stackpole offers a wide range of wire-wound resistors, including a custom-built, wire-wound fuse. Stackpole’s wire-wound products also include a rugged, edge-wound tubular wire-wound (EWT/SWT) resistor series and a surface mount wire-wound (SM) resistor series featuring high temperature molded encapsulation, flex termination for absorbing thermal expansion.
Stackpole is also committed to providing solutions for design and application issues in today’s world. The RNCP series offers a low cost solution that eliminates the risk of sulfur contamination and the RNCS series provides an alternative to tantalum nitride resistors that are used in harsh, humid environments.
