These high energy wire wounds are equipped with an adjustable lug, making them ideal for adjusting circuits, obtaining unique resistance values and setting equipment to meet various line voltages.

DRS resistors feature a hollow core to permit secure fastening with thru bolts with washers or spring-type clips. They also offer the durability of lead free vitreous enamel, or silicone coating and all-welded construction.

The Power (DRS) Adjustable Resistor is RoHS compliant and lead free. For non-standard technical requirements and custom special applications, please contact us.

To Calculate Max. Amperes :

  1. Voltage = (Watts x Ohms) 1/2

Power Rating :

  1. Based on 25°C free air rating. The stated wattage rating applies only when the entire resistance is in the circuit.
  2. Setting the lug at an intermediate point reduces the wattage rating by approximately the same proportion.
  3. Example: If the lug is set at half resistance, the wattage is reduced by approximately one-half.
  4. Wattage is proportional to this adjusted resistance value.
  5. Adjustability is 10% to 90% of full resistance value.

Features :

  1. Adjustable lug supplied.
  2. High wattage applications.
  3. Flame resistant and rugged lead coating.
  4. Terminals suitable for soldering or bolt connection.
  5. Resistance Tolerance: J(±5%), K(±10%).

Options :

  1. Adjustable, fixed, or tapped styles are available.
  2. Special terminals available for non-standard applications.
  3. Single and double quick connect terminals can be specified.
  4. Standard lug terminals available with or without terminal hardware.
  5. Non-inductive Ayrton Perry windings can be specified.
  6. Special temperature coefficients, tolerances

Application Notes of Adjustable Wirewound (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 / 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 (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.

Power Rating:

  1. Based on 25°C free air rating. The stated wattage rating applies only when the entire resistance is in the circuit.
  2. Setting the lug at an intermediate point reduces the wattage rating by approximately the same proportion.
  3. Example: If the lug is set at half resistance, the wattage is reduced by approximately one-half.
  4. Adjustability is 10% to 90% of full resistance value.
  5. Wattage is proportional to this adjusted resistance value.
