New Yorker Electronics announces release of VPG’s new RWX/APR Foil Resistor series

30 November 2023

New Yorker Electronics has announced VPG Foil Resistors’ new release of its RWX Wraparound Foil Resistors. These high-precision, stable Bulk Metal Foil resistors are AEC-Q200 qualified have resistance tolerances up to ±0.01% and are available in MIL-PRF-55342 or ALPHA Typical.

With an operating temperature rating of -65° C to 155° C, this new VPG Series is available in three types. The RWAX is 1.6 mm x 0.8 mm and is rated at 22 V, the RWBX is 2.0 mm x 1.25 mm and rated at 45 V the RWCX is 3.2 mm x 1.6 mm and has a 95 V max working voltage rating. They are available in 0603, 0805 and 1206 packages.

The RWAX (1.6±0.2 x 0.8±0.2) has a rated power of 0.1 W and a temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR)Source: New Yorker ElectronicsSource: New Yorker Electronics of 0±6 ppm/° C with a resistance range of 100 Ω to 5 kΩ and 1 kΩ to 5 kΩ. The RWBX is rated at 0.2 W with a TCR of 0±10 (30 Ω to 100 Ω) and 0±5 (1 kΩ to 10 kΩ). The third in the series, the RWCX, has a rated power of 0.3 W and a TCR of 0±10 ppm/° C (30 Ω to 100 Ω) and 0±5 in 100 Ω to 30 kΩ.

The RWX is part of VPG Foil Resistor’s high-performance APR product line, a new platform of standardized precision resistors that are made-to-stock and available on short delivery. VPG’s new APR product line addresses market demands of trending applications like 5G or electric vehicle charging equipment to provide off-the-shelf, A+ class, standard surface-mount resistors in tape and reel packaging and power current-sense resistors with resistance values. According to VPG Foil Resistors, the new APR has taken high-precision resistors to a new level which is now standardized and affordable to all.

Designed and manufactured in VPG’s fully automated plant in Japan, the minimum order quantity is 100 and New Yorker Electronics can advise on how the RWX series can meet the specific design applications. As a franchised distributor, New Yorker Electronics supplies VPG Foil Power Current Sensor, hermetically sealed, high-temperature, trimmer and military and space resistors.
