Suntan Power of a Potentiometer

A Potentiometer with a power rating of (say) 0.5W will have a maximum voltage that can exist across the pot before the rating is exceeded.

All power ratings are with the entire resistance element in circuit, so maximum dissipation reduces as the resistance is reduced (assuming series or "two terminal" rheostat wiring).

Let's look at the 0.5W pot, and 10k is a good value to start with for explanation.
If the maximum dissipation is 0.5W and the resistance is 10k, then the maximum current that may flow through the entire resistance element is determined by ...

P = I² R ... therefore
I =P / R ... so I = 7mA

In fact, 7mA is the maximum current that can flow in any part of the resistance element, so if the 10k pot were set to a resistance of 1k, current is still 7mA, and maximum power is now only 50mW, and not the 500mW we had before.

Suntan Features of Polypropylene Plastic Film Capacitors Applications

Extremely low dissipation factor, higher dielectric strength than polycarbonate and polyester films, low moisture absorption, and high insulation resistance. May use plates of foil, metalized film, or a combination. Film is compatible with self-healing technology to improve reliability. Usable in high frequency applications and high frequency high power applications such as induction heating (often combined with water-cooling) due to very low dielectric losses. Larger value and higher voltage types from 1 to 100 μF at up to 440 V AC are used as run capacitors in some types of single phase electric motors.

Suntan Ceramic Capacitor HF uses

Ceramic capacitors are suitable for moderately high-frequency work (into the high hundreds of megahertz range, or, with great care, into the low gigahertz range), as modern ceramic caps are fairly non-inductive compared to the other major classes of capacitors (film and electrolytic). Capacitor technologies with higher self-resonant frequencies tend to be expensive and esoteric (typically, mica or glass capacitors).

Sample self-resonant frequencies for one set of C0G and one set of X7R ceramic capacitors are:

  10 pF 100 pF 1 nF 10 nF 100 nF 1 µF
C0G (Class 1) 1550 MHz 460 MHz 160 MHz 55 MHz    
X7R (Class 2)     190 MHz 56 MHz 22 MHz 10 MHz

Suntan Tantalum SMD Capacitors----TS20

Tantalum SMD capacitors are widely used to provide levels of capacitance that are higher than those that can be achieved when using ceramic capacitors. The capacitor technology that is used within SMD tantalum capacitors is based on the solid tantalum capacitor technology. This is robust and enables very small capacitors to be made.
For many years tantalum capacitors were used in SMD applications because electrolytic capacitors were not able to survive the high temperatures of the soldering process. Now that electrolytic capacitor technology has been developed to withstand the soldering process, these capacitors are now also widely used. Despite this, the other advantages of tantalum capacitors are employed in many circuits, and they are still used in vast quantities.
For Suntan TS20 SMD Tantalum Capacitor, It has the following Features:

  • Molded case available in six case codes
  • Compatible with all popular 'High Volume' automatic pick and equipment
  • Optical character recognition qualified

Suntan Trimming Potentiometers

A potentiometer is an adjustable resistor. This is why some customers called potentiometer variable resistor. Resistor include fixed resistor and variable resistor. Variable resister (potentiometer) belongs to passive components. A potentiometer is constructed using resistive element comprising an arc of a circle and a sliding contact (wiper) travelling over that arc.

Trimmers come in a variety of sizes and levels of precision; for example, multi-turn trim potentiometers exist, in which it takes several turns of the adjustment screw to reach the end value, allowing for very high degrees of accuracy. Our Suntan has many types of Trimming Potentiometers ,for example TSR-3006  TSR-C3305 and so on ,these products is for our Suntan mark ,you can set your heart at rest ,we can guarantee our quality . f you have any questions please contact us, we can try our best to meet your requirements.

Suntan Tantalum capacitor advantages (2)

The advantages of Tantalum Capacitors can be summarised:
High reliability: Tantalum Capacitors are more reliable than many other forms of capacitor. Provided they are operated within their ratings they are able to provide an almost unlimited life. Their use is not time limited as in the case of electrolytic capacitors.

Wide operating temperature range: Tantalum Capacitors are able to operate over a very wide temperature range. They are often specified for operating over the range -55℃ to +125℃. This makes them an ideal choice for use in equipment for use in harsh environmental conditions.

Compatibility with modern production methods: Modern production techniques often expose components to high temperatures during soldering as the whole assembly is heated by infra-red heat. Using conventional leaded components only the board surface was heated and the amount of heat conducted by the leads was usually insufficient to damage the components. Tantalum capacitors are able to withstand the temperatures of SMT production and are there fore ideal for use in many new electronics designs.

Suntan Tantalum capacitor advantages (1)

Tantalum Capacitors offer many advantages over other types of capacitor. This has meant that their use has risen considerably over the years, and now they are widely used in all forms of electronics equipment. The advantages of Tantalum Capacitors can be summarised:

Volumetric efficiency: Tantalum Capacitors offer a very high level of volumetric efficiency - much greater than many other types. In particular they are better than electrolytic capacitors which are their main rival.

Good frequency characteristics: The frequency response of Tantalum Capacitors is superior to that of electrolytic capacitors. This means that they are more suitable for use in a number of applications where electrolytics could not be used.

Suntan ceramic capacitors

ceramic capacitors consist of electrodes, the interleaved ceramic dielectric and the external terminal connectors. The capacitance is given by the description:

A = Electrode area
n = Number of active layers
d = Distance between electrodes
εr = Dielectric relative
ε0 = Dielectric constant

Whilst the values “A x n” and “d” are respectively determined by the production process the dielectric constant is a function of the ceramic material used.

Suntan Trimmer Capacitor

Trimmer capacitors (trimmers) are miniature variable capacitors. They are designed to be mounted directly onto the circuit board and adjusted only when the circuit is built.

A small screwdriver or similar tool is required to adjust trimmers. The process of adjusting them requires patience because the presence of your hand and the tool will slightly change the capacitance of the circuit in the region of the trimmer!

Trimmer capacitors are only available with very small capacitances, normally less than 100pF. It is impossible to reduce their capacitance to zero, so they are usually specified by their minimum and maximum values, for example 2-10pF.
