Hey guys,

I'm trying to change the pattern some of my resistors, but I'm having issues picking a pattern. Mostly, I can't figure out what all the dimension numbers stand for. For example, RES-10.16/5.1x2.5. That's a lot of numbers, and I'm not sure what numbers are what. I think I figured out the first one is the actual length of the resistor (minus leads), but the other two numbers don't seem to correspond with any other dimensions? A diameter of 5.1 is huge (my largest resistor has L=12mm, with D=4mm, and a lead diameter of .8mm), and a lead diameter of 2.5 is also huge, so I don't think that's what the second two numbers represent. I want to make sure the leads fit through the holes = /

Thanks!

The first dimension means pad spacing. Next dimensions are resistor body length and width (diameter).

Another Noobie here- this is documented, where?
Thanks
