Resistor Question

Post by F1nut » Thu May 15, 2014 11:16 pm

Ok, so I've got some emitter resistors in an old SS amp that I need some help identifying.

Marked on two separate lines as follows;
M2 0.5ohm
Noble 02

They are axial with a white ceramic tubular body, which is about 5/8" long and 1/4" in diameter. Obviously they are 0.5 ohm and I think they are 2 watt, but I'd like to be sure. I called Noble who was absolutely no help, said they are too old. Is anyone familiar with these markings?

Since noble said they are to old and cant be of assistance . I would throw in a .5 ohm 5 watt ceramic resistor and call it a day.

You could also measure the voltage drop if you're functional and calculate the wattage dissipated. Then throw on the typical "more than X 2" headroom required for the continuous duty. It's nice to let a resistor run at less than half it's capability.

I found the schematic. They are 0.5 ohm, 2 watt.
