Has anyone used these resistors?
« on: April 17, 2015, 02:55:30 AM »
RoyalOhm Metal Film 0.6w 1% tolerance, same size as 1/4w vishays

My supplier sells them cheaper than the vishays (half the price to be clear) and I don't see no reason why these couldn't be used in pedal builds.

Looking at the datasheet I'm not that sure these are 1% I think tolerance is 2%. It also seems current noise level might be lower the higher the power (but that's only a guess based on last page graphic and I don't think it really matter for this kind of application).

Datasheet for reference: http://www.royalohm.com/pdf/metal%20film.pdf

They look good to me Al. Give them a test run and see if you like them. 50% less can add up to some serious money. Best of luck.
