ASR / ASRM anti-surge resistors handle surges up to 10KV
High voltage applications such as HVAC controls, appliance and white goods controls, metering, automation, medical devices, digital storage, and surge protection devices typically require resistors with high working voltage that may be challenging to find. If the applications are low current or low energy, film resistors are an ideal technology.
The ASR / ASRM series from Stackpole offers high working voltages, high pulse voltage handling, and well-defined pulse behaviour. The ASR / ASRM handles surges ranging from 2KV for the ASRM14 up to 10KV for the ASRM1 and ASRM2.
For applications with high voltage surge and low energy requirements, the ASR / ASRM is a viable replacement for carbon composition resistors, providing improved electrical and environmental stability, better tolerance and TCR, with better long-term availability.
