For over 90 years, the Ohmite Manufacturing Company have been the leading provider of resistive products for high current, high voltage, and high energy applications. Ohmite can offer a full complement of resistor construction, including wirewound, wire element, thick film, and ceramic composition. Ohmite's Power Resistors can be found across the industrial, medical, military, and aerospace industries.

Ohmite recently acquired the global ceramic resistor and Maxcap® capacitor business from Kanthal. Kanthal's Global ceramic resistor products will be combined with Ohmite's existing A Series and OX/OY Series product lines to form the new Ohmite Ceramic Resistor Division.


High energy density capacitors for backup power. With Maxcap® double layer capacitors, microprocessors, small motors and activators having current requirements from one to several hundred milliamps can be supported from several seconds to minutes.

Maxcap® double layer capacitors are characterized by:

  • Extremely high volumetric efficiency (over 5.5 farads/in³)
  • Virtually unlimited service life
  • Fast/charge discharge capability
  • Very low leakage current
  • Wide operating temperature range, including -40°C to +85°C (-40 to +185°F)
