|Publication Date:||19 January 2018|
This handbook is for guidance only. This handbook cannot be cited as a requirement. If it is, the contractor does not have to comply. This handbook consists of the following:
a. Selected standard resistor types, for use in the design and manufacturer of Department of Defense equipment under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense.
b. Guides for the choice and application of resistors for use in Department of Defense equipment.
Requirements for resistors listed in this handbook are covered in the applicable specification (see 2.1). When it has been determined that circuit requirements cannot be met by using resistor styles or characteristics listed in the applicable specifications, the design engineer should, with the approval of the cognizant activity, select from the applicable resistor specification styles or characteristics not listed herein.
Purpose of handbook.
a. To provide the equipment designer with a selection of standard resistors for use in most Department of Defense applications.
b. To control and minimize the variety of resistors used in Department of Defense equipment in order to facilitate logistic support of equipment in the field.
c. To outline criteria pertaining to the use, choice, and application of resistors in Department of Defense equipment.
