In laser systems its critical to have ballast resistors to stabilise the discharge and limit the current between the voltage source and the discharge tube. Systems which do not have ballast resistors will show flashing or flickering discharge.
The PTE and PUT ranges of thick film high power resistors gives the user a range of choices from 1W to 50W in high ohmic values. These resistors are specially designed using stable thick film inks made with precious metals and screen printed on high purity ceramic rods.
Protect your laser systems with high quality thick film resistors which are specially designed to used in high voltage systems globally.
