10K ohm reference resistor

A quick and easy project to mount a pre­ci­sion 10K ohm resis­tor for use as a ref­er­ence standard.

To go along with my Quad pre­ci­sion volt­age ref­er­ence I want­ed to add an accu­rate resis­tance ref­er­ence to my bench equipment.
I decid­ed on a 10K ohm pre­ci­sion resis­tor from Vishay Foil Resistors.
The resis­tor is a Z series ultra high pre­ci­sion Z‑Foil though-hole resis­tor with a TCR of ± 0.05 ppm/°C, Tolerance of ± 0.005 % (50 ppm), Load Life Stability of ± 0.005 %, and rat­ed at 0.6 Watts.

Mounted in a Hammond #1457C801BK box, dimensions:
3.484″ L x 2.441″ W x 1.336″ H (88.49mm x 62.00mm x 33.93mm)

This was a quick and easy project that took less than an hour to finish.
