Ohmite / ARCOL
Arcol can supply an extensive range of Arcol’s carbon composition and aluminium clad resistors – products designed to be integrated into prototyping, development and assembly work in automotive, medical and lighting applications. All Arcol resistors are high performance devices with an industry-standard range of resistance values.
Arcol’s series of carbon composition resistors provide very high pulse capability and low inductance. Available in 0.25 W and 0.5 W power dissipations, this is a solid axial lead carbon slug resistor offering resistance values between 2.2 and 910k. They may be small but their carbon composition ensures a powerful performance.
Among the Arcol ranges is the HS series. Clad in aluminium, these resistors are ideal for mounting directly onto heatsinks and in confined spaces offer wide power dissipation. Available in 10W, 25W, 50W, 100W, 200W and 300W versions, these wirewound products deliver maximum results across a huge range of resistances. A combination of welded construction and quality resistance alloys and control ensures exceptional reliability.
ARCOL is a supplier and manufacturer specializing in power resistors. An international company with ISO9001 approval, ARCOL houses every process in a single location. From design and purchasing to manufacture, production and sales, you are assured consistency and excellence in all products. Special technologies are used in their high voltage / high resistance, low ohms / foil / current sense, high pulse / energy absorb, thick film, thin film, and wirewound products. ARCOL can assist in resolving special requirements in applications such as traction (auxiliary power devices), power generation and distribution, motor drives, power supplies, and GTO protection circuits.
Built on 50+ years of experience ARCOL is a global manufacturer and supplier of resistors. ARCOL products are available from a strong network of Partners, Representatives and Distributors, enabling ARCOL to be established as a leader in the global resistor market. Based on the continual developments of the core products range ARCOL has built a resistor product offering to include film ,foil, wirewound, and carbon composition technologies to meet demands of Power, High Voltage, Pulse Load and Shunt/Current Sense applications, to name but a few.
ARCOL was acquired by Ohmite in 2015. Ohmite is a leading manufacturer of Power Resistive products, which include power resistors, surface mount resistors, and rheostats.
