Braking resistors are used widely across the manufacturing industry. Their purpose is to control the braking energy generated when the motor of a machine or large electronic device is stopped. The majority of brake resistors dissipate the excess energy as heat which is countered using either water or fan cooling technology.
The most obvious benefit of using a braking resistor is a reduction in wear and tear of the machine or electronic device motor, resulting in a longer useful life and increased manufacturing output. Their use also prevents the machine or electronic device motor overheating and improves safety.
The appearance of a brake resistor varies depending on the power required and they consist of either loose coils or enclosed banks of wire. There are a range of industry professionals who can assist in determining the correct brake resistor to be used on your machine or electronic device motor.
Overall, the use of braking resistors in manufacturing can provide significant time and cost savings across the industry.
