Then let PRC custom manufacture your wire wound resistor, sensor, or shunt with some of the shortest lead times in the industry. Engineering samples can be supplied at no cost to you in 7-10 days for most jobs. Computer tracking charts are available for reference with certain part types. If you need a specific marking on your part(s) we will custom print your order with the marking you desire & at no additional cost to you. If needed, you can interchange the size, shape, lead dimension, wattage, voltage, current, Ω value, tolerance, & TCR characteristics with most part types. Visit our SM 4-Terminal Series & see if one of our other parts from the same series will satisfy all your requirements. If you still do not find a part that meets the exact specifications your application requires, simply click Contact/Request For Quote & fill in all known spec fields. One of our highly trained engineers will review your objectives and see if we can modify one of our standard parts to satisfy all your requirements.
