6.1 Intended use. The intended use specified in MIL-PRF-55182 is applicable to this specification.
6.2 Acquisition requirements. Acquisition documents must specify the following:
a. Title, number, and date of this specification, and the complete PIN (see 1.2).
b. Issue of DoDISS to be cited in the solicitation, and if required, the specific issue of the individual documents
referenced (see 2.1).
c. Packaging requirements (see 5.1). (i.e. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitive packaging).
6.3 Reliability levels. Data submitted for reliability levels established for MIL-PRF-55182/7 may be combined with
this specification data to establish or maintain the reliability level of this specification if identical resistors are both
qualified for MIL-PRF-55182/7 and this specification.
6.4 Power rating at 70 C. The power at 70 C for 2,000 hours life test has been established at 0.125 watt,
maximum voltage is 200 volts. It should be noted that the failure rate level is established at the single condition of
125 C, 0.10 watt and 10,000 hours life test duration.
6.5 Qualification. With respect to products requiring qualification, awards will be made only for products which are,
at the time of award of contract, qualified for inclusion in the Qualified Products List whether or not such products
have actually been so listed by that date. The attention of the contractors is called to these requirements, and
manufacturers are urged to arrange to have the products that they propose to offer to the Federal Government tested
for qualification in order that they may be eligible to be awarded contracts or orders for the products covered by this
specification. Information pertaining to qualification of products may be obtained from Defense Supply Center,
Columbus, ATTN: DSCC-VQP, Post Office Box 3990, Columbus, OH 43216-5001.
6.6 Electrostatic charge. Under several combinations of conditions, these resistors can be electrically damaged,
by electrostatic charges, and drift from specified value. Users should consider this phenomena when ordering or
shipping resistors. Direct shipment to the Government is controlled by MIL-DTL-39032 that specifies a preventive
6.7 Changes from previous issue. The margins of this specification are marked with asterisks to indicate where
changes from the previous issue were made. This was done as a convenience only and the Government assumes
no liability whatsoever for any inaccuracies in these notations. Bidders and contractors are cautioned to evaluate the
requirements of this document based on the entire content irrespective of the marginal notations and relationship to
the last previous issue.
