Through-hole type resistors are components widely used in electronics for controlling current and voltage in a circuit. These components have a cylindrical construction and feature a range of terminals ranging from two to eight pins. The through-hole type resistors are usually made from ceramic, but they can also be manufactured with other materials like metal oxide or carbon film.
The advantages of through-hole type resistors include their high voltage ratings, low power losses, and high temperature tolerance. They offer superior noise immunity due to their polarized construction and can provide reliable operation even in harsh environments. Furthermore, their construction allows them to have large power ratings compared to their size and weight.
