UL Standard for Safety Conductive-Path and Discharge-Path Resistors for Use in Radio-, Video-, or Television-Type Appliances
Includes all amendments and changes through Revision Page(s) , March 21, 2013
Published By:UL (UL)
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.
