    Here's a question for Renard user/builders.

    Anyone know another source for the resistor network used:- 10pin 680ohms 2% (Mouser part no. 266-680-RC).
    So far I can only source from Mouser or Active Components. Element 14(Farnell) & Futurlec don't list them.
    Mouser del. costs too high, Active want $100 min order!


    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Steve

    I don't think you'll find that type / value locally easily. There is a simple solution however.

    The network is made up of 9 resistors. Pin 1 is the common.

    Here's a photo (from Google images) of how you can make one from separate resistors. The blue circle is indicating the common (pin 1)

    So all you need to do is grab nine 680 Ohm 1/4 resistors and you're done!

    I can post you some if need be.

    Thanks David,

    I can see how that could be a solution, kinda untidy though, but hey who looks at the board?

    That would also explain why it all goes a bit weird when you put them in backwards.

    LOL - yes, the "commoned" type of resistor network must be installed the right way around. The dot or stripe denotes pin 1 (the common).
