Radial type resistors have a mounting style in which the leads are emerging from the same side of the resistor. This is in contrast to axial resistors where the leads emerge from opposite sides. Read More
Power resistors are constructed with radial leads to maintain a safe distance between the mounting surface (PCB) and the resistor, to prevent heat transfer on to the device. These resistors may be silicon coated, vitreous enamelled or ceramic encased for insulation from heat. Their construction types may also vary from film resistors to wire wound.
Radial lead type of thin film resistors have very high resistance tolerance and the least temperature coefficient of resistance. They are typically mounted on insert type PCB boards.
Radial type resistors are widely used in:
