Powertron offers a full complement of resistors for accurate, precise, and high-power circuits, with customization capabilities supporting virtually any package type.  Powertron focuses on delivering solutions with the best combination of power ratings, TCR, and resistance ranges.  Our foil resistor products include devices built on CuNiMn Bulk Metal® Foil for low-ohm, high-precision applications, with TCR down to 5 ppm and long-term stability of 0.1%; as well as NiCr foil for even higher levels of stability, with TCR of 1 ppm and long-term stability of 0.01%. A supplemental thick film product line is also available in a wide range of packages. Powertron produces thick film power resistors in standard sizes, in addition to custom solutions with “as-required” resistor values. 

Their products are used throughout the world in high-precision medical, aerospace, military, and industrial applications.
