What is a Fixed Resistor?
A resistor is used to reduce the flow of electricity in an electric circuit. Resistors come in fixed or variable types. A fixed resistor cannot be changed as it is set at a specific value, whereas a variable resistor can manage flows at and below a specific level.
Types of Fixed Resistors
There are many different kinds of fixed resistors and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Resistance, Size Code, Tolerance, Temperature Coefficient, Packaging type and Rated Power. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for Resistance are 10 Ω, 100 Ω, 10 kΩ and 100 kΩ. We also carry fixed resistors with Resistance as high as 1 GΩ. Rated Power can be up to 1000 W, with the most common fixed resistors having a Rated Power of 100 mW, 125 mW or 250 mW.
