Cost-effective resistors assure anti-moisture performance for tough jobs | Electropages via @sharethis
Stackpole’s HDM Series axial-leaded resistors feature carbon film based technology. Through proprietary materials and processing, Stackpole has achieved exceptional moisture withstanding for the HDM without significant increase in manufacturing costs. Normally axial-leaded resistors that need to withstand high humidity require a metal glaze technology, which is considerably more expensive. The HDM Series can survive 100 hours in a pressure cooker at 120C, over 98% relative humidity and two atmosphere’s pressure while standard carbon film and metal film resistors would fail, says the company.
