Rhopoint Components Infographic for Current and Resistance Calculations

History of Rhopoint

Rhopoint Ltd was founded in 1975 with the aim to support engineers specialising in the design of electronics and product development by offering a selection of precision resistors to the UK market.

The Rhopoint name originates from two ideas. Firstly, the Greek letter ρ (pronounced rho). This is the symbol that represent electrical resistivity; the fundamental property of a material that quantifies how strongly it resists or conducts electrical current.

Secondly the word “point”, in the context of measurement, is defined as a definite measurable position in a scale, thereby signifying precision.

Hence the company was named Rhopoint to highlight our competence in the ever-evolving world of precision resistors. Incidentally, the first product we sold in 1975 was a high-precision wire-wound resistor from General Resistance. These products still represent part of our portfolio today, over 45 years later!

In 1997, the Rhopoint Ltd name was changed to Rhopoint Components Ltd. In the years to come, Rhopoint Components Ltd branched out, founding a sister company of Rhopoint Nordic ApS in 2006 to better support our Scandinavian customers. Later, in 2011 Rhopoint Energy, a brand of Rhopoint Components was created, providing a wide range of industry-specific components, connectors and sensors to the Oil & Gas, Subsea and Renewables industries.
