HVR Pentagon Heavy Duty Tape Wound Resistors are essentially an extension to the Vitreous Enamelled Range.

 

Continuous Power Ratings available from 250 Watts to 1000 Watts.

 

The resistor winding is completely protected by several coats of vitreous enamel, which have been fired to produce a high reliability resistor, capable of withstanding adverse conditions.

 

Typical Applications for HVR Pentagon Heavy Duty Tape Wound Resistors include Dynamic Braking, or where a pulse rated resistor is required.

 
       

Mainly used for Dynamic Braking or where a pulse rated resistor is required.

For low Ohmic Values, resistors are edge-wound with corrugated tape, as shown in the illustration.

On this type of resistor, the power rating can be approximately 25% greater than that of the equivalent wire-wound resistor, due to the increased heat dissipation provided by the corrugated tape.

Tape-wound resistors can also be provided with adjustable tapping clip (Suffix ADJ).
