Description

The FLA high precision through-hole resistor series from Alpha Electronics offers a very precise resistor with a resistance range from 5Ω up to 100kΩ all in a small through-hole package. The terminals have been designed for easy insertion into the PCB. By utilising Alpha’s Bulk Metal® foil resistor technology, they are able to produce resistors with low-temperature coefficients and excellent long-term stability. This makes them ideal for precision measurements, also their low inductance enables use at higher frequencies.

  • Conformally coated through-hole resistor
  • Resistance values between 5Ω and 100kΩ
  • Tolerance options as low as ±0.05%
  • TCR of ±2.5 ppm/°C or ±5 ppm/°C
  • Temperature range from -25°C to +155°C
  • Maximum working voltage of 250V
  • Power rating of 0.125W (at +70°C)
  • Pin pitch of 2.54mm ±0.25mm

 

Typical applications for the FLA high precision through-hole resistor series include:

  • Sceintific instrumentation
  • Test & Measurement equipment

Place holder video for YouTube video Resistor Stability Put to the Test (Demo Video)

In this video, our host Richard Zuratt puts the stability of the three major resistor technologies — foil, thin, and thick film — to the test. Each resistor type is subjected to an overload pulse and its change in resistance value is recorded. Due to the homogeneous nature of the VPG Bulk Metal® Foil resistor, it is the only of the three to experience no change from the high power pulse. This demonstrated performance makes foil resistors the technology of choice for critical applications where long-term stability and survivability are paramount.

Place holder video for YouTube video Advantages of Using Bulk Metal® Foil Resistors in High-Humidity Environments

All resistors that are based on nichrome, which is a category that includes both thin film devices and Bulk Metal Foil resistors, are susceptible to electro-chemical corrosion or etching when placed in a high humidity environment and powered with a very low wattage. But since the nichrome element of a Bulk Metal Foil resistor is hundreds of times thicker than the element in a thin film device with the same value, it will last much longer under these conditions. This video shows the actual etching process and survival times for thin film and foil nichrome resistive elements as they are tested in 100% humidity conditions.

Place holder video for YouTube video Comparison Testing of Chip Resistor Technologies Under High Vibration

Surface-mount resistors suffer physical stresses when exposed to high vibration or thermally unstable environments. Failure modes commonly occur in welds, solder joints, connectors, and terminations, ultimately resulting in circuit failure. In this demonstration, vibration-table-mounted boards are subjected to ±2° deflection 25 times per second and monitored for any ΔR > 0.1%. All the chip resistors failed in 2 to 12 minutes (8K to 16K cycles). But the Alpha MPP molded Bulk Metal® Z-Foil resistor with flexible terminations experienced over a million cycles with no change in resistance.
