Start How to make a resistor?

The resistor element (conductor) can be placed on a support, for example, a wirewound resistor, which has ceramic support where the wire is wound on. The ends of the resistor element are connected to electrical terminals. Other resistors have a casing where the resistor elements are fitted in. Some resistor types have thermally conductive filling material to expel the heat that is generated in the resistor element to the outside.
