RCD Announces Release of CM Series Carbon Matrix Resistors

Manchester, N.H. (USA) – RCD Components, under the iNRCORE Family of Brands, is launching a new line of Carbon Matrix Resistors, comparable to the now unavailable Allen Bradley and other aftermarket Carbon Composition parts that have been marked end-of-life. The line enhances stability and reduces the common moisture related issues of the Carbon Composition line, CC series.

“CM Carbon Matrix was developed to be a direct drop-in replacement for Carbon Composition Resistors.  The CM series will be able to be utilized in high energy pulses applications and will be able to absorb more energy than other film type resistors and with low inductance” said Jerry Brimmer, President of RCD Components.

Ideal for Hi-Rel, Military, Medical, Energy, Power & Industrial applications. Individual CM models are available in 1 and 2 Watt. Each is designed to operate in temperatures between -55° Celsius to +125° Celsius.

Common applications include circuit protection (surge and/or discharge protection), current limiting, high voltage power supplies, high power, strobe lighting, welding and more.

Starting at 1W and 2W, keep an eye out for additional sizes to come.
