April 21, 2014 - Featuring non-inductive Ayrton-Perry winding andnon-magnetic, all-welded construction, MRA Series offers high temperature operation to +350C, which is suited for high-end audio and medical imaging equipment. Axial lead devices provide resistance from 0.01 Ω to 85.0 kΩ, with tolerances of 1%, 5%, and 10%. In addition, resistorsfeature TCR of 90 ppm/C for resistance below 0.99 Ω, 50 ppm/C for resistance from 1.0–9.9 Ω, and 30 ppm/C for resistance of 10 Ω and above.

Vishay Intertechnology Releases New Series of Non-Magnetic, Non-Inductive Axial Lead Wirewound Resistors

63 Lincoln Hwy., P.O. Box 4004
Malvern, PA, 19355

Press release date: April 17, 2014

Ideal for Audio and Medical Applications, Devices Feature High Power Ratings to 12 W and Operating Temperature to +350 C

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new series of non-magnetic, non-inductive axial lead wirewound resistors with high power ratings to 12 W and high-temperature operation to +350 C, which is ideal for high-end audio and medical imaging equipment.

For radio frequency (RF) and operational amplifier applications, the non-magnetic and all-welded construction of the Vishay Mills MRA series devices, from the Vishay Dale Resistors division, greatly enhances frequency response. Combined with a non-inductive Ayrton-Perry winding, inductive reactance and signal loss are virtually eliminated.

The resistors provide power ratings from 4 W to 12 W at 25 C and temperature ranges from -65 C to +250 C (characteristic U) and -65 C to +350 C (characteristic V). The devices offer resistance from 0.01 Ω to 85.0 kΩ, with tolerances of 1 %, 5 %, and 10 %, and TCR of 90 ppm/C for resistance below 0.99 Ω, 50 ppm/C for resistance from 1.0 Ω to 9.9 Ω, and 30 ppm/C for resistance of 10 Ω and above.

MRA resistors are RoHS-compliant and comply with Vishay Green standards.

Device Specification Table:
Model Power Rating P25 C (W) Resistance Range (Ω)
Characteristic U +250 C Characteristic V +350 C
MRA-05 4.0 5.0 0.01 to 15.0 k
MRA-10 7.0 10.0 0.05 to 35.0 k
MRA-12 10.0 12.0 0.05 to 85.0 k

Samples and production quantities of the MRA series are available now, with a lead time of six to eight weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery only starts at $1.40 per piece in 1,000-piece quantities.
