Carbon composition resistors litter all the old electronics and power controls equipment in facilities I service. Carbon comp resistors are basically obsolete, what replaced them?
I need % percent resistance tolerance, 1 Watt, and the ability that the old carbon composition resistors had to be able to hold up to pulse loading with minimal inductance. Also they need to last the test of time.
Any idea what kind of axial resistors would work well for an abusive application such as my resistors which I'm using on gate pulse transformers for DC drives?
Exactly, I want the best replacement money can buy, what kind of resistors would we recommend? Wire wound resistors have inductance, please don't mention these nor carbon film which don't hold up and have changing resistance values over their service life.
