The resistor is applied in different electric appliances as a current limiting element. Alloy material with different resistance property can be used to produce resistors with different functions. The resistors can be divided into electrothermal resistor, strain resistor, precise resistor, heat sensitive resistor etc.
OHMALLOY can provide resistor material including nichrome, Fe-Cr-Al alloy, copper manganese alloy, copper-nickle alloy. You can get the bar material or wire material of these alloy materials to produce resistor.
During the manufacturing of the resistor, the material is quite important. We can provide the following four kinds of resistor material. You can click to check their property. We can provide customization service.
The wire wound resistor is used to protect the frequency converter and power grid. So it requires high and stable resistivity. We can provide custom FeCrAl alloy and nichrome alloy resistor with high resistivity.
The jumper wire is usually used as the connecting components on printed circuit board. It features small resistance value because it is usually made of copper nickle alloy.
The resistor is usually used as the heating component of electric furnace, kettle, air-conditioner etc. During the application, the most important factors are high resistivity and non deformation under high temperature. FeCrAl alloy and nichrome alloy are suitable material to produce electrothermal resistor.
