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?
Ah ha, I didn't notice "Claro" printed on the underside earlier.
Looks like it's a 20W 5% resistor.
Quoted from G-P-E:
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.
