Finding inexpensive resistors that meet the demands of high voltage, low current applications with pulse requirements can be challenging. For low energy applications, film resistors offer a great blend of voltage and pulse handling at a reasonable price.

Stackpole’s ASR / ASRM series anti-surge thru-hole resistors offer high voltage pulse handling with defined pulse power characteristics. From the ASRM14 1/4W size rated at 500V to the ASRM1 1W and ASRM2 2W both rated at 4KV, this series is a great choice for high voltage applications requiring a robust cost effective high voltage thru-hole resistor. In addition, this series offers pulse voltage handling ranging from 2KV for the ASRM14 to 10KV for the ASRM1 and ASRM2.

Applications for the ASR / ASRM include HVAC controls, appliance and white goods controls, power control and monitoring, metering, automation, medical devices, digital storage, and surge and lightning protection.

Pricing for the ASR / ASRM depends on size, resistance value, and ranges from $0.045 to $0.115 in full package quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distribution partners for volume pricing.
