Token's (FVR) Series is a C-shaped ceramic rod and wound with copper or chromium-alloy wire as a resistance element. Except for the slide contact surface, the entire component is coated with a high-temperature, non-flammable resin.
After cooling and drying, insulation is applied through a high-temperature process. Then, a centered rotating adjuster component is installed, which slides along the resistance element and varies the resistance to the desired value.
Adjustable wirewound resistors are often called potentiometers in books and catalogues. Variable (FVR) may be used as a power rheostat with two connections (the wiper and just one end of the track) or as a potentiometer with all three connections in use.
FVR can be used to control electric ovens and cooktops, thermostats are preferred because they have additional parts which automatically adjust the current flow to maintain a constant temperature.
Motor controller also use FVR Series as rheostats or potentiometer to control the speed of a motor by limiting the flow of current through them.
The scope of the application also includes educational modeling, load simulations, industrial machinery RPM adjustment, voltage and current adjustment, instruments, and automated control installations.
The FVR Series is RoHS compliant and lead free. For non-standard technical requirements and custom special applications, please contact us.

Determination of End Resistance Value of FVR, DQS, DSRA, DSRB, BSR, BSQ:
Power Rating of Variable Resistor:
The part Nunber formation of FVR, DQS, DSRA, DSRB, BSR, BSQ:
- - -
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.
