Stackpole’s RNV resistor series meets IEC 60065.14.1 standards handling up to 7kV for 50 discharges of a 1nF capacitor.
The RNV Series has a working voltage rating up to 1,600VDC and an overload voltage rating of up to 3,200VDC depending on resistance value. The RNV series uses proprietary manufacturing processes and materials to provide a robust product that can withstand 1,000 hours at 40°C, at least 90% relative humidity with cycled power on for one and a half hours and off for half an hour.
The RNV Series is aimed for applications requiring high voltage handling capability, high reliability, and stability, such as switching power supplies, power inverters, AC adaptors, appliances, electronic ballasts, and displays and monitors.
The RNV Series is available in both five percent and one percent tolerances, and in standard ammo and tape and reel packaging. Pricing for one percent tolerances is around $0.04 each in full reel quantities.
