RESISTOR, FLAMEPROOF, FUSIBLE
This (CID) covers the general requirements for flameproof, fusible resistors. These resistors act as a wire-wound resistor and a fuse, and are used in applications where precise control of fusing point and time lags are necessary. These resistors eliminate fire hazard and circuit board damage due to overheated components. Resistors covered by this CID are intended for commercial/industrial applications and are not used in military systems needing stringent environmental and electrical requirements.
