Resistor sample kits contain various combinations of resistors for use in electrical circuit designs. These kits are versatile to accommodate a variety of electronic application set-ups and board prototyping.
The resistors in in resistor sample kits can be made of different materials, including carbon film, metal film, metal foil or metal oxide. Special sample kits may contain either thick-film or thin-film products customised for specific uses.
These kits are useful in numerous applications in designing, constructing or repairing electronic devices. Resistors are used a wide variety products like phone headsets, power supplies, barcode scanners, plasma televisions, control systems and stereo equipment.
Resistors contained in these sample kits are often categorised by mounting type, such as axial, through hole, panel mount or surface mount
Another consideration when choosing a kit is to look at the resistor value ranges, usually indicated via colour coding charts on the packaging of the kits.
