Wirewound Rheostats and Potentiometers Characteristics
FEATURES
RHEOSTAT MODE
• 12 W to 500 W at 25 °C
• CCTU 05-03B
• Material categorization:
For definitions of compliance please see
www.vishay.com/doc?99912
The performance of RT-RTE rheostats exceeds the
requirements of specification CCTU 05-03B.
They have been designed for heavy duty applications such
as repeated overloads, transients, shock and vibration
conditions.
G
RT VITREOUS SERIES
Z
Six sizes are available capable of dissipating 12 W, 25 W,
55 W, 100 W, 250 W or 500 W at 25 °C.
The resistive wire is protected by a proprietary Vishay
Sfernice enamel fired at high temperature and free from any
compound that could cause corrosion of the wire.
The maximum operating temperature of the RT series is
320 °C.
POTENTIOMETER MODE
GANGED UNITS
Ganged units are available with different combinations of
power and ohmic values (see datasheet).

MAXIMUM OVERLOAD
In rheostat use, the winding current decreases in relation to
the number of turns being used.
When part of the winding is used the current can be
increased in accordance with the graph on the left.
Substantially heavier overloads can be applied in short
impulses and we would be pleased to advise on this type of
application, on receipt of the following information:
