Wire Wound Resistors

Produced by winding a resistance wire around a solid ceramic former, wire wound resistors have a variety of different applications in the rail industry, but are particularly useful as a power resistor when larger amounts of energy needs to be dissipated. LPC Components design and manufacture a range of wire wound resistors for customers throughout the UK, all of which are compact, efficient, and perform to a consistently high standard. Please see the list below for the types of wire wound resistors we manufacture:
