Resistors design

Steel grid resistor (RP)

Rezystory serii RP3

Steel grid resistor may be used for any application with a continuous power exceeding 2kW and continuous current exceeding 10A.


Steel grid resistor (RP) consists of resistance plates made of FeCr or NiCr steel, interconnected in packages. The plate packages are mounted on a frame to form ready resistors.

Dimensions of steel grid resistor (RP)
