Top Four Uses of Custom Resistors That You Should Know

The use of custom resistors in our day to day lives is something that we must be aware of. It thus goes without saying that we literally cannot do anything without the use custom resistors. Before we can look into those uses, it is important that we establish certain concepts in electricity since this is important for our understanding of the different uses of custom resistors.

Electrical energy is generated when electron flow unidirectionally through a conductor. This current is made up of electrons. For purposes of regulating the flow of these electrons in a circuit, it is important that you use devices known as resistors. Resistors can have a number of applications in our real life as we shall discuss below.

The first application of resistors is where they are used in circuits to form the timing mechanism that can be used in a number of cases. In this regard, the resistor has to be wired together with a capacitor so that it can serve the purpose of a timer. The many day to day uses of lighting flashers, auto sirens and many other timing mechanisms rely on this mechanism. The working of this times relies on how fast the capacitor is filled with electric charge and this is determined by the resistor that is connected to it.

by understanding the simple fact that capacitors store electric charge, you will appreciate the fact that we can determine the time that is needed to fill a capacitor with charge by using the resistors. Once the capacitor is filled with charge, then a burst of energy is released and this forms the timing mechanism such as is used in a car siren. The cycles are repeated sequentially depending on the amount of electricity that is permitted through a resistor.

Finally, resistors can be used for purposes of dividing the amount of voltage that is dissipated at a given point in an electrical circuit. The voltage in this regard is divided when it is passed through resistors of either equal or different values of resistance. This is usually important when it is required that an appliance that has a low intake of voltage has to be connected in a circuit that is powered from the mains. Further to that, in any application where lower voltages are needed, the concept of voltage division can be implemented by ensuring that current flows in a circuit are varied depending on the varying amounts of resistance applied to those circuits. Resistors connected in this manner for purposes of causing voltage differences in an electric circuit are said to form a daisy chain of resistor connection. Various electrical appliance employ this concept of daisy chain connection.
