Overview

Spintronic resistors resist the flow of current. The higher the resistance value, the harder they are to turn. Resistors help keep circuits under control by limiting the flow of current.

Resistors come with fixed values that cannot be changed. You must choose the value of the resistor before you can add it to your cart.

Detailed description

Resistance is generated from shearing of silicone oil inside a sealed chamber. This gives a very stable resistance with low stiction. To make resistors of different values, the factory mixes silicone oils of varying viscosity.

Resistances are accurate to +/- 10% at the reference spin voltage. Note that there is a significant dependence of resistance on the spin voltage applied across the resistor due to the slight non-Newtonian behavior of silicone oil. See the datasheet supplied with the part for more information.

Excellent customer service.

I got a spare 1kΩ resistor following a manufacturing defect from the original one provided in the Spintronics Act 1 kit. Customer service did an excellent job here. Product is fully conform and functionnal. I trully appreciate Upper Story's dedication to customer satisfaction, even more being a teacher using the Spintronics kits as an educational tool for my students. I recommend without reservation.

Sehr gutes Kundenservice

Wir haben der erste Akt gekauft für unseren Sohn, beim aufbauen haben wir festgestellt, dass dieser eine Teil kaputt war. Ich habe eine Email geschrieben und binnen 2 Stunden hatte ich eine Antwort mit dem Versand vom neuen Teil. Alles super reibungslos und unkompliziert! Wir sind sehr zufrieden

Top Service, tolles Spielzeug

Hatte einen defekten Widerstand bei Lieferung, wurde direkt kostenlos neu zugesandt. Das Spiel ist auch was für größere 🤣

A great idea and great product.

Not only have nothing but praise for the Spintronics product but I must add that the customer service is exemplary. Two issues sorted for me within hours! My grandson (7) loves playing with his two sets 1 & 2 of Spintronics and has learnt a lot since starting at Christmas.

Brilliant customer service

I had a part break in a set bought for Christmas. One quick email and I got a very fast reply, and a replacement through my letterbox within a couple of days. Really exceptional customer service - very impressed!

Awesome service!

The piece broke a few days before Christmas when my son was building with it. I sent an email to upper story about the issue. I had sent the email on Christmas Eve thinking that it wouldn’t be seen till after Christmas. Christmas Day, Nick had promptly told me that the part would be replaced and asked for my address and even addressed it to my son when I asked him to! We received it 2 days later. I really appreciated how fast it was taken care of! Thank you Nick if you are reading this!
