Higher Power, Anti-Surge Resistors for Challenging, Harsh Environments

August 04, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Panasonic has introduced the ERJ-UP8 Series Anti-Sulfurated Thick Film Chip Resistors, Anti-Surge Type. Extremely durable in challenging or unclean, harsh environments, the ERJ-UP8 Series provides anti-sulfurization characteristics that avoid an open circuit caused by a sulfide disconnection.

High resistance to sulfurization is achieved through the use of an anti-sulfurated electrode structure and material in the manufacture of ERJ-UP8 Series Resistors. The URJ-UP8 series solves demands for higher-power and environmentally-durable resistors

The ERJ-UP8 Series Resistors are recommended for design in harsh or unclean environment applications where a device might be exposed to oil, gas or polluted soil.  The ERJ-UP8 Series features higher rated power at 0.66W in a 1206 inch / 3216 mm case size and ESD surge characteristics superior to standard Thick Film Resistors.

AEC-Q200 Compliance and IEC 60115-8, JIS C 5201-8 and EIAJ RC-2134B Reference Standards for the entire ERJ-UP8 Series of Anti-Sulfulrated Thick Film Chip Resistors from Panasonic ensures optimal quality and reliability.
