Resistor - Carbon Film, Zero Ohm
Zero ohm (0Ω) resistors in a carbon film axial package. These resistors are a similar size to most common 1/4W carbon film and metal film resistors. Zero ohm resistors are useful as pcb jumpers as well as point to point jumpers. These can also be useful for true bypass 3PDT wiring.

1 answers What is the purpose of a 0 ohm resistor? Can’t one use a piece of wire as a jumper?
Asked by Anonymous on February 15th, 2023.
This serves the same connective purpose as a piece of wire, but provides additional insulation in potential close-contact wire situations, such as in the wiring of a 3PDT footswitch. Some also prefer using a zero ohm resistor simply for aesthetic purposes.
