Braking resistors

Elkon’s braking resistors are designed to dissipate the energy generated by the motor during the deceleration process, thus preventing overload of the variable speed drive.

These resistors are built according to the client’s required resistance and wattage values, and come with terminal blocks and a device to protect against thermal overload. They are approved for 1000 V.
