Advanced welded spot of anti-surge wire wound resistor
The wire wound resistors have been around for more than a half century, they are usually existing in high power circuit design, but are not suitable for anti-surge applications. The reason is a reliability problem of the solder joint between alloy wire and metal cap, when the wire wound resistors are produced, the joint of the welded spot and metal cap may have false welding on the welded spot. Hence, the welded spot will be easily broken when surge across it with huge energy.
FIRSTOHM realizes the reliability of the welded spot is a key factor to withstand surge. Therefore, we did some researches and avovid this problem. Below pictures show the original welded spot and after implementation:
Original - Traditional wire-wound resistor – Welded spot is not reliable against surge
