Description / Abstract:

These requirements cover discharge-path resistors that are intended to be connected between the antenna and the supply circuit of a radio-, video-, or television-type appliance. The resistors are intended to reduce the risk of fire or electric shock due to the buildup of a static electrical charge on the antenna connected to the appliance. These resistors are:

a) Rated 1/2 W or greater,

b) Rated 480 kΩ to 12 MΩ for use in a 50/60 Hz, 125 V or less circuit, and

c) Rated 960 kΩ to 12 MΩ for use in a 50/60 Hz, 126 – 250 V circuit.

These requirements cover conductive-path resistors, of any rating, intended to be connected between live parts and accessible conductive parts of a radio-, video-, or television-type appliance.
