The anti-surge RCS thick film chip resistor series combines a significantly higher power rating and pulse load performance as compared to the standard chip resistors. Having higher power in the same package size, the RCS series resistors are ideally suited for applications where high power and enhanced pulse proof features are required; available in sizes 0402, 0603 and 0805 and respective tolerance & TCR combinations of 1% and 0.5% with 100ppm/°C and 5% with 200ppm/°C. The resistance range extends from 1Ω thru 1MΩ and is also available as a 0Ω jumper.
