Over 500 resistor lines added

RS Components is building on its global agreement with Ohmite Manufacturing to expand its portfolio of Ohmite brand resistors. This will add more than 500 lines of Ohmite products including ceramic composite ‘pulseaters,’ metal-element current sense, wirewound rheostats, and Slim Mox precision thick-film type devices. In total, more than 4,500 Ohmite and Arcol products are now stocked and available to order online from RS.

According to RS, the expansion emphasises its  support for resistor technologies and offers customers fast access to a range of technologies and resistance values for high-power requirements. Global head of interconnect, passive and electromechanical at RS, Eric Smith, explained: “RS has furthered its relationship with Ohmite Manufacturing to provide customers with technical excellence and access to market-leading products for use across many sectors, including electronics, automotive, industrial, transport and computing and communications.”

President of Ohmite Manufacturing, Greg Pace, added: “RS offers world-class e-commerce and logistical capabilities, enabling us to reach a wider base of customers.”
