NEW PE SERIES THICK FILM RESISTOR FROM OHMITE
Bridging the gap between low power, high resistance potentiometers and high power, lower resistance wirewound rheostats, Ohmite’s new PE Series thick film potentiometers have a metal shaft and ceramic housing to provide a smooth linear operation and low noise performance.
Rated at 5 watts, the PE Series is available in resistance ranges from 50 ohms to 20 megohns with a standard tolerance of 20%. Being a combination of rugged Ohmite wirewound rheostat construction with the thick film expertise of their Victoreen Components Division, the potentiometers are designed for the industrial environment and have a rotational life of 25,000 cycles.
With a dielectric strength of 900V rms and an ambient operating temperature of -65C to +125 degC, this is a component suited to tough conditions.
