Stackpole Electronics's ASR Series of anti-surge metal film resistors are rated for high voltage applications. Working voltage for the ASR Series ranges from 1150 to 4000V with overload voltage from 1500 to 5000V. In addition, the ASR can handle high voltage capacitor discharges from 3KV for the smaller sizes up to 10KV for the larger.
The ASR also features outstanding single and repetitive square pulse handling when compared to standard film resistors. The ASR Series is ideal lower cost replacement for ceramic composition and carbon composition resistors where the pulse voltage capability of the resistor is critical or where the inherent inductance of wirewounds is undesirable. In addition, this series is popular for high voltage power supplies, medical applications, plasma cutters, test systems, and circuit protection.
The ASR Series are available in resistance values from 10Ω to 12MΩ. Power Ratings range from ¼ to 2W and 5% tolerance is standard. Pricing is size and resistance value dependent and ranges from $0.045 to $0.22 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributor partners for volume pricing.
