About us





   Rheostats ( sliding rheostats ) are commonly used in physics experiments for changing resistance or electric current.  We, with our own factory specialized in producing rheostats, are able to supply full range of sliding rheostats in conformance with Chinese Standards of Ministry Of Education ( GB JY 28-97 ), as well as special rheostats produced according to customers spcifications, desings or drawings.  Send your enquiry at any time.
