Exxelia Ohmcraft Resistors: Precision Resistors for the World’s Most Advanced Medical Applications.

Designed with precision and reliability at the core, Exxelia Ohmcraft Resistors are the standard in high-performance applications. Their stability, low noise, and high pulse load capability ensure optimal functionality in AEDs, contributing to their life-saving accuracy.

For example, Exxelia Ohmcraft’s high voltage resistors have played a critical role in AED operation for more than 20 years, especially : HVC series, SM series, HVR series, HVD series, and Custom.

- Voltage Ratings to 40 kV (HVD series)

- Resistance Values to 4 TΩ (HVR series)

- Ultra High Stability

- Very Low Noise

- Ratio Tolerances to 0.1% for all series

- TCR to 25 ppm/°C

- TCR Tracking to 5 ppm/°C

- VCR to 1 ppm/V (SM series)

- Custom Configurations


Exxelia directorIn an emergency medical situation, reliability is critical—automated external defibrillators must always work and never fail. At Exxelia Ohmcraft, all of our resistors go through rigorous testing to ensure complete reliability. In addition, to maintain their portability, AEDs are manufactured to be as small as possible.

Our proprietary Micropen technology enables us to print surface mount resistors that are high in capability, and small in size, making them perfect for applications of this kind.

said Vice President Exxelia Ohmcraft.

MIL Spec 39006, Now available in LEVEL R

Exxelia, global manufacturer of complex passive components and subsystems for harsh environments, is expanding its line of MIL-PRF-39006/22 & MIL-PRF-39006/25 tantalum capacitors, with the support of the reliability level R. MIL-PRF-39006 tantalum capacitors equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 series: this is the new range of gelled tantalum capacitors meeting the standards required by the US Department of Defense in the manufacturing of components (compatibility & reliability).   Exxelia now offers reliability level R, in addition to level M and P for voltage ranges from 6 V to 125 V with capacitance values ranging from 1.7 µF to 1 200 µF. Available in all package sizes (T1 to T4), these fully sealed products are designed to operate at temperatures ranging from -55°C to +125°C and withstand the harshest environmental conditions. Performance highlights over solid tantalum capacitors include higher energy density, higher ripple currents, lower ESR and lower DC leakage current. Engineers with complex design requirements looking for a product that can be easily integrated into projects such as power supplies & converters or filtering units for the aerospace and defense industries will be pleased.  MIL 39006/22 & MIL 39006/25 Level R are now available for order with a lead time of 14 weeks.   "The introduction of these new ranges builds on our decades of experience in supplying high reliability capacitors to the military market and demonstrates Exxelia's ability to meet the most demanding specifications in terms of product development" says Jerome Tabourel, Exxelia's vice president of sales and marketing. "We are proud to be one of the few MIL qualified tantalum capacitor manufacturers, and our flexibility and advantageous lead times will bring new supply opportunities."   TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS Capacitance from 1.7 μF to 1,200 μF Voltage from 6 V to 125 V Operating temperature -55°C to +125°C Very good shock and vibration resistance (option H available)   Download the complete datasheet
