I haven't been able to identify this large 25 ohm resistor, even though it has a part number on it. Does anyone recognize it and know what its properties are?

Claro
3-7850
VPR 20H
25 ohm
India

Ah ha, I didn't notice "Claro" printed on the underside earlier.

Looks like it's a 20W 5% resistor.

It appears to say 25ohm not 20.

Yep -- 25 ohm, 20W Vitreous Enamel... pricey.
Ohmite makes an alternate -- B20J25RE but be prepared to pay a hefty price for them.
Any reason they need to be this style? Can you use a cement 25 ohm, 25W resistor there?

I imagine they could be replacement with cement resistors.

I was merely trying to identify them in order to include the component specs in the documentation for this game that I'm putting together.

As far as I can tell, these resistors knock down the high voltage for the filpper coils to the low hold voltage, since the flippers do not have EOS switches.

Ohmite has raised prices dramatically the past few years.
