OC Series Ceramic Composition Resistors from Ohmite

December 7, 2022

The OC Series of fixed ceramic resistors from Ohmite are ideal for circuitry involving surges, high peak power, or high energy, with the ability to handle a maximum single energy pulse of 275 joules.  These resistors offer enhanced performance in high voltage power supplies, R-C snubber circuits, and inrush limiters.  They can also often replace carbon composition resistors which can be difficult to source or carry prolonged lead times.

This product is offered in three sizes and multiple wattage and energy levels with peak voltage handling of 2500 volts.


  • Replaces 1 and 2 watt carbon composition resistors
  • Excellent alternative to the Ohmite OX/OY series
  • Meets high energy density demands
  • High peak power
  • 10% tolerance
