  • Rib-Wound Adjustable Wirewound Resistor (DQS)

Adjustable Ribbon-Wound (DQS) have been a main product line at Token Electronics for years. Adjustable ribwound resistors are particularly useful where high energy is to be dissipated in the lower ohmic ranges and high power capacity. Precision winding design, provide uniform windings to be applied extremely close to each other resulting in significantly higher resistance values.

In significant savings in space and cost, Adjustable (DQS) Series is ideal replacements for many standard round-wire resistors.

The Power Adjustable (DQS) Resistor is RoHS compliant and lead free. For unusual technical requirements and custom special applications, please contact us.

Features :
  • Resistance Tolerance: K(±10%), J(±5%), H(±3%).
  • Power-rib wirewound resistor with adjustable lug supplied.
  • Suitable for high energy to be dissipated in the lower ohmic ranges.
  • Design as heavy-duty resistors to withstand frequent start-stop cycles.
  • Hollow core to permit secure fastening with spring-type clips or thru bolts with washers.
  • Durability Flame resistant coating and all-welded construction. Terminals suitable for bolt connection or soldering.
Power Rating :
  • Adjustability is 10% to 90% of full resistance value.
  • Wattage is proportional to this adjusted resistance value.
  • Example: If the lug is set at half resistance, the wattage is reduced by approximately one-half.
  • Based on 25°C free air rating. The stated wattage rating applies only when the entire resistance is in the circuit.
  • Setting the lug at an intermediate point reduces the wattage rating by approximately the same proportion.
Options :
  • Single and double quick connect terminals can be specified.
  • Standard lug terminals available with or without terminal hardware.
  • Special temperature coefficients, tolerances, adjustable value, fixed, or tapped styles are available.
  • Special terminals available for non-standard applications. Non-inductive Ayrton Perry windings can be specified.
Calculate Max. Amperes :
  • Voltage = (Watts x Ohms) 1/2

Adjustable Wirewound Application Notes (DQS)

Determination of End Resistance Value of FVR, DQS, DSRA, DSRB, BSR, BSQ:

  1. Resistance Range means you can choose one maximum resistance value (Max. Pickable Resistance Value / End resistance value)
    at one of FVR, DQS, DSRA, DSRB, BSR, BSQ VR (Variable Resistor) type.

  2. After End Resistance Value confirmed, the minimum resistance (start resistance value) will be determined
    by depending on resistance of wire and wirewound type.

Power Rating of Variable Resistor:
The part Nunber formation of FVR, DQS, DSRA, DSRB, BSR, BSQ:

Product type - Rated Wattage - Max. Pickable Resistance Value (Ω) - Resistance Tolerance

Product type means one of FVR, DQS, DSRA, DSRB, BSR, BSQ.
Rated Wattage means power rating at End Resistance Value.
Resistance Value (Ω) means maximum resistance value (End Resistance Value).
Resistance Tolerance means precision range of End Resistance Value.

1. Power Rating of VR (Variable Resistor) is determined by the maximum resistance value (End Resistance Value).
2. Resistance and Power Rating should be decreased while you are adjusting the screw.
