Braking resistor for variable speed drive from 1kW to 600 kW

Oil drilling platform

What is the principle of a braking resistor?

The braking resistor therefore enables the correct operation of the drive in complete or partial braking. It will thus transform electrical energy into calorific energy. It is also capable of absorbing strong power surges over long cycles.

Braking resistors are suitable for various applications thanks to their technical advantages: overhead cranes, container ships, cranes, automated production lines, etc.

High-performance resistors

  • High powers
  • Attractive price
  • Small footprint
