50W ÷ 550W (with heat – sink)

Hermetic flatpack aluminum case resistor

IP54, Wire wound on mica plate coated with cement filled with quarzite sand and sealed with silicone plug

Dynamic braking, Charge/discharge capacitor

Industrial automation, Energy

Ohmic values out of range, Special tolerance on resistance (2%, 1%), Different cable length, Thermal switch, Low inductance, Heat sink mounting


The resistor is marked on the collar with indelible ink high temperature FAIRFILD – RFD 550 150R 5% WW/YY (week / year)


Warning: Units must never be mounted with the terminals uppermost


The resistor is packed in a way to preserve incidental damages due to transport. To avoid resistor’s break we recommend to never take it from the cables and to handle with care inside the original boxes provided by the factory.

RRRR Resistance value (nominal at 20°C)


RFD 550 150R 5%

RFD is the name of the product

550 is the model

150R means 150 Ω that is the nominal ohmic value at 20°C 5% is the tolerance on the ohmic value, in this case the value of the resistor is accepted when is within 142.5 Ω ÷ 157.5 Ω
