Application Specific Resistor Solutions


TSEC delivers application specific resistor solutions. Specialists in thick film power resistors, high voltage resistors, resistor networks and heater resistor design and manufacture we deliver the best resistor device for any given application.

In some applications design compromises to accommodate a standard resistor are not an option. Extreme environments or reliability constraints can be beyond the capability of ‘off the shelf’ components. Sometimes, the only option is an application specific resistor device.

With a long custom thick film resistor manufacturing and design heritage, we manufacture all products in our UK based facility in low to medium volume. We support both new designs and legacy projects with form, fit and function replacements for obsolete devices.

Thick Film Resistor Technology

Our products are based on thick film resistor technology as it is mechanically robust, has excellent thermal properties and low inductance. The technology is also comparatively cheap with a high resistance density (small size).

Resistor Applications

Our application specific thick film resistor products can be found in a wide range of demanding applications including motor control, surge protection, dynamic braking, load banks, sensors, Gyroscopes, military (RADAR), medical devices, racing cars and specialist laboratory equipment. We deliver both single devices and network resistors capable of withstanding a range of environments from standard commercial to those involving both high temperature and mechanical stress. More information on resistor technology and applications is available on our Blog page.
