Dynamic Brake Resistors

Dynamic Brake Resistors

DBR's can be used to stop or slow down a mechanical system. When kinetic energy from something like a spinning motor is transformed back into electrical energy you can slow down or decelerate an electric motor. This energy is dissipated by using a power resistor. These brake resistors usually have a high power rating and relatively low ohmic values. Our Dynamic Brake Resistors usually have a ceramic core, are fully welded, and are encased in a frame to establish a safe distance from other parts. They brake the motor quickly and dissipate the excess energy as heat.

Dynamic Braking Resistors are recommended whenever:

  • Application requires quicker braking of the motor than usual.
  • Repetitive stopping required.

Please call us on 01905 887 667 if you require assistance speccing the correct size DBR.
