Amtrans AMRG Carbon Film Resistors


Since the demise of the beloved Riken Ohm carbon film resistors back in 2005/6, with their distinctive blue body, colour code bands and gold plated copper leadouts there hasn`t been a serious contender to rival them. Until now...

Amtrans, from Japan, used to be the distributor for Riken resistors. In 2005 they bought a resistor factory, whether this was the original Riken premises they wouldn`t confirm. Soon came the AMRG carbon film resistor, which they claim is better than the Riken as they have employed cutting edge technologies for production. Indeed they aren`t far from the truth, these are truly amazing.

They are available in 0.75 watts and 2 watts, from 10R to 1.5M. The full E24 range is available for the 0.75W and the E12 range for the 2Ws. They have a 1% tolerance, non-magnetic, they are encapsulated in a black anodized aluminium case, potted in a highly thermally conductive resin, brass end caps, and gold-plated oxygen-free copper leadouts. A lot to boast we believe and at an incredible price.
