Carbon composition resistors have almost negligible inductance

The RC Series of carbon composition axial leaded resistors has been released, which is suitable for high speed or high energy pulse handling requirements. The large mass of the carbon resistive element efficiently dissipates high energy surge events while the almost negligible inductance allows for higher switching speeds than comparable wirewound resistors, the company claims.

Carbon Comps remain a useful choice for switch mode power supplies as well as many other snubber and energy dumping applications. The RC Series is also a popular choice for surge withstanding in meters and data collection devices as well as a variety of lighting products.

The RC series is available in ¼ watt, and ½ watt sizes in resistance values from 1Ω up to 22MΩ. Standard tolerances are five and ten percent.
