Stackpole Expands Value Range of MLF / MLFM Series Melfs
Press release date: January 28, 2014
RALEIGH, NC — Stackpole has expanded the resistance range of its MLF / MLFM Series of metal film melf resistors. The ¼ watt and ½ watt sizes are now available in resistance values down to 10 ohms for TCR's of 25 ppm and tighter. In addition, the ½ watt size is now available in resistance values down to 0.2 ohms for TCR's of 50 ppm and 100 ppm. This value extension allows the use of the MLF Series for a wide variety of applications. It also expands the possibilities for use of the MLF Series as a surface mount replacement for similar sized axial leaded resistors.
The MLF / MLFM Series is a popular choice for a wide range of applications where stable operation and thermal stability are important, such as instrumentation and metering, controls, communications equipment, network analyzers, and automotive controls.
Pricing varies with size, value, tolerance, and tolerance and ranges from $0.025 to $0.62 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole for volume pricing.
