Environmental stability for thin film resistors has become more important with increased electronic content. Sulfur contamination for film resistors, for example, is becoming a more prominent issue for a wide range of end products. Electronic devices and circuitry may encounter sulfur in the presence of oils, lubricants, gaskets, hoses, and atmospheric gasses in highly industrial areas. Finding anti-sulfur resistors can be difficult and finding those that are also moisture-resistant is even more challenging.
The RNCS-AS series offers a precision thin film anti-sulfur option with excellent anti-sulfur performance as measured by ASTMB-809-95 sulfur testing with a maximum shift of less than 0.5%. The RNCS-AS is also highly resistant to moisture corrosion, with less than 0.1% resistance shift under industry standard testing at 85 degrees C, 85% relative humidity, and 10% rated power.
The RNCS-AS is well suited for a wide range of industrial, medical, test & measurement, and precision control applications.
Pricing for the RNCS-AS varies with size, resistance value, and tolerance. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributor partners for specific pricing.
