Film resistors are a type of resistor that uses a thin carbon film to restrict electric current. They're widely used in modern electronic circuits and specifically designed for high voltage and high-temperature applications such as power supplies. They are manufactured with a ceramic carrier and thin carbon film around it. These film resistors also have a low tolerance and low cost, making them an affordable option for your next project.
In many high voltage and high-temperature applications, it's necessary to use a resistor that can operate over a wide range of temperatures. Standard resistors, such as carbon composition resistors, can't function properly in high-demanding environments. Carbon film resistors have a wider operating range than standard resistors and generate less noise than carbon composition resistors.
