Fixed resistors can be found in any type of electronic device or electrical application.
Variable Resistors are often used in audio control, television, motion control, transducers, home electrical appliances and oscillators.
Resistor networks are in several applications including analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion, voltage dividers for power functions and computer applications.
We carry the following categories of resistors:
- • Fixed Resistors
• Resistor Networks & Arrays
- • Variable Resistors
- • Ceramic
Once you choose the resistor category, you can narrow them down by various attributes: by Resistance, Tolerance, Rated Power, Maximum Working Voltage, Power Dissipation and Size Code, to name just a few.
Capacitors have several uses in electrical and electronic systems. They are so widely used that it is rare that an electrical product does not contain some type of capacitor. A capacitor can store electric energy when it is disconnected from its charging circuit, so it can therefore be used like a temporary battery.
They are often used in electronic devices in order to maintain a power supply while batteries are being changed thus preventing loss of information in volatile memory applications. In car audio systems, large capacitors are used to store energy for the amplifier to use when required. An uninterruptible power supply may be equipped with maintenance-free capacitors in order to extend its service life.
