Alpha Compact Resistors
The leading edge compact resistors of today must integrate a number of different features. Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS compact resistors combine high performance with reduced surface dimensions and a compact design. Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS' alpha resistors have a rectangular shape and are aluminum coated. The units consist of wire resistors with fully welded connections, wound on micanite bodies, embedded in quartz sand, isolated with mica and mounted within the anodized aluminum casing. The complete design demonstrates a high degree of stability when undergoing stress from temperature change. The resistors meet electric and thermal requirements of the IP 54 protection class. Other protection classes and designs are available upon request.
