The OW/OX/OY Series of fixed ceramic resistors are ideal for circuitry associated with surges, high peak power or high energy. They offer enhanced performance in high voltage power supplies, R-C snubber circuits, and inrush limiters. The OW/OX/OY resistors can often replace carbon composition resistors which can be difficult to source. The OW/OX/OY series can handle 50 joules and 80 joules of energy for a single impulse respectively with high impulse voltage handling.
The options offered by Ohmite for Ceramic Compositon resistors doesn't stop at the OW/OX/OY series. Ohmite has an extensive portfolio of ceramic products.
