The HDM Series from Stackpole is an axial leaded carbon film technology resistor with outstanding moisture withstanding capability. Axial leaded resistors that need to withstand high humidity typically require a metal glaze technology which is considerably more expensive. The HDM Series can survive 100 hours in a pressure cooker at 120 degrees C, over 98% relative humidity and 2 atmosphere’s pressure while standard carbon film and metal film resistors would fail.
Stackpole’s HDM Series is a good choice for industrial equipment and controls, industrial power systems, HVAC, remote communications infrastructure, outdoor lighting and security, electronic irrigation controls, UPS and emergency power systems, and instrumentation.
Pricing for the HDM varies with size and tolerance and ranges from $0.012 to $0.025 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributors for volume pricing.
