RESISTOR, FIXED, WIRE WOUND (POWER TYPE),
STYLES RW80 and RW81
THIS SPECIFICATION IS INACTIVE FOR NEW DESIGN (SEE 6.4)
This specification is approved for use by all Depart-
ments and Agencies of the Department of Defense.
1.1 Scope. This specification covers the associated requirements for styles RW80 and RW81 resistors.
1.2 Part or Identifying Number (PIN). Resistors covered by this specification are identified by a PIN,
which consists of the style designation, characteristic, and coded resistive value. The PIN is derived in
accordance with MIL-PRF-26 and is in the following form:
126.96.36.199 Style. The style is identified by the two-letter symbol "RW" followed by a two-digit number.
188.8.131.52 Characteristic. The characteristic is identified by a single letter that identifies the maximum
continuous operating temperature (surface hot spot), the minimum insulation resistance value at the end of
the moisture resistance test, and the resistance temperature characteristic in accordance with table I.
