Amtrans AMRG resistors

Since the demise of the beloved Riken Ohm carbon film resistors back in 2005/6, with their destinctive blue body, colour code bands and gold plated copper leadouts there hasn`t been a serious contendor 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 they are truely amazing.

These resistors have a 1% tolerance. They are non-magnetic, encapsulated in a black anodized aluminum case, potted in a highly thermal conductive resin, gold-plated copper end caps and gold-plated oxygen free copper leadouts. A lot to boast we believe and at an incredible price.


• power rating: 2 Watt
• Tolerance: +/- 1%
• Max working voltage: 500V (2W)
• Operating temperature: -55 to +155 degrees C
• Ceramic base: Porcelain rod (alumina)
• Resistor film: High quality carbon film
• End caps: Cupped plated brass
• Lead wire: Gold plated oxygen free copper wire
• Potting: Hightly thermal conductive resin
• Casing: Anodised Aluminium
