RMEF 100% lead free thick film chip resistors released
Applications for thick film chip resistors which are 100% lead free without exemption continue to expand. Finding resistors for those applications can be challenging since there are few options currently available.
Stackpole Electronics has announced the release of the RMEF series of thick film chip resistors that are completely RoHS compliant without exemption. The RMEF is a general purpose resistor series offering resistance values from 1 ohm to 10M, in one and five percent tolerances and TCR’s ranging from 100 ppm to 400 ppm depending on size and resistance value.
The RMEF is a well suited substitute for electronics that must transition to fully lead free components for compliance as it provides all the performance, resistance values, power and voltage ratings of a general purpose chip resistor, in a completely lead free package.
Pricing for the RMEF varies with size, value, and tolerance.
