TOM: The speed of your fan is controlled with resistors. Let's say your fan switch has four settings: Off, High and two middle positions.
This means that the resistance value of the positive resistor will be tuned easily by bias current.
The temperature distribution is completely different on an isolated resistor than in circuit with couple resistors.
For reasons of speed, simplicity and cost it is usually more economical to replace old resistors rather than to take out a whole drive system and replace it with squirrel cage motors and modern drives.
Resistor based on new design Offering a direct plug-in device for most DMMs, the FSR is based on a new design utilising its registered Bulk Metal Foil technology, resulting in a combination of standard features with new benchmark capabilities for accuracy, stability, and speed.
The ULW series wirewound resistors overcome the problems associated with conventional flameproof resistors caused by the ceramic rod at the resistor's core acting as a heat sink for the wire element.
