damping resistor

damping resistor

[′dam·piŋ ri‚zis·tər]
(electricity)
A resistor that is placed across a parallel resonant circuit or in series with a series resonant circuit to decrease the Q factor and thereby eliminate ringing.
A noninductive resistor placed across an analog meter to increase damping.
