Parts per million. The terminology used when describing the temperature coefficient.
Passive Components －
Components such as capacitors and resistors, which have no gain characteristics.
Screenable, thick film material composed of metals, oxides, and glasses in an organic vehicle which when fired, produces a circuit element such as a resistor or conductor.
Rated Ambient Temperature －
The maximum ambient temperature at which resistors are capable of being used continuously with the prescribed rated load (power). The rated ambient temperature refers to the temperature around the resistors inside the equipment, not to the air- temperature outside the equipment.
Rated Power －
The maximum value of power, which can be continuously loaded to a resistor at a rated ambient temperature. Please confirm beforehand that there is such a case in a network that rated power per package as well as per element is specified.
Rated Voltage －
The maximum value of D.C. voltage or A.C. voltage (commercial frequency effective value) capable of being applied continuously to resistors at the rated ambient temperature. Rated voltage shall be calculated from the following formula. However, it shall not exceed the maximum working voltage.
Rated Voltage (V) = √Rated Power (W) × Nominal Resistance Value(Ω)
Opposition to the flow of alternating current offered by capacitance, inductance or both.
Both reactances are measured in ohms, and symbolized by the variable x.
Resistance (unit Ohm, Ω) －
A specific property of a material depends on its molecular structure, size and temperature and in a circuit, acts to oppose an applied voltage and limit the current flowing into the circuit.
Resistance is measured in ohms.
Resistive Products －
A broader term that describes components whose primary function is to introduce resistance into the circuit.
Resistor Element －
A continuous, unbroken length of resistive material without joints, bonds or welds except at the junction of the element and the electrical terminals connected to each end of the element, or at an intermediate point.
A basic component that introduces resistance in electrical and electronic circuits.
Resistor Tolerance －
The permissible deviation of the manufactured resistance value (expressed in percent) from the specified nominal resistance value at standard (or stated) environmental conditions.
