A blog post discussing the value of chassis mount resistors in automotive electronics. explains the advantages of a chassis mount resistor and the how and why of one.
Chassis mount resistors: what are they?
A chassis mount resistor is a fixed-value resistor, which means that its resistance cannot be changed and is set at a certain value. Resistors installed on the chassis are essential elements because they help shield other circuit components from harm.
How do resistors with a chassis mount function?
Chassis mount resistors often include an aluminum metal shell that is thermally conductive and a wire-wound design (a wire wrapped around a core of non-conductive material to attenuate or restrict current flow). They may also include components made of corrugated ribbon for quick cooling or construction that resists fire.
Chassis Mount Resistors: Their Value
The chassis-mounted resistor’s casing is made of an aluminum alloy (gold aluminum shell), has surface heat dissipation grooves, is small, powerful, temperature-resistant, has a strong capacity for overloading, is weather-resistant, has a high level of precision, has a standard low induction resistance, and has high stability. The sturdy, high-temperature construction of the cha is ideal for mechanical protection and simple setup and usage. It may be used in heavy-duty electrical and manufacturing machinery, motor start-up or shutdown, load test simulation, and dynamic braking.
Considerations to Make When Choosing a Chassis Mount Resistor
There are a few things to take into account when choosing a chassis mount resistor. First and foremost, the resistance has to be strong enough to support the component it is protecting’s current draw. To sustain high temperatures, the resistance must also be heat-tolerant. Third, the resistor has to have less noise to avoid interfering with other electrical parts. The resistor must also be simple to install and maintain.
