Resistor Series Selector Guide

A simple guide on how to choose a resistor without diving deep into details.

Use this below chart to identify the product series that are most suited based on your design / application considerations. The product series have been categorized '1' '2' '3' & 'Not Suitable' based on the conditions/application. '1' being the most ideal series and '3' being least suitable and those that are not suitable at all are marked as 'X'. Meanwhile please do reach out to us at : [email protected] or drop in a Request for Quote ; if you need any assistance in identifying the right resistor for your specific requirement.
