The SXLG high-performance braking resistors are ideal for use in drive systems with frequency inverters to dissipate the kinetic energy contained in the system during braking. Since a large amount of regenerative energy is converted into thermal energy in braking resistors during braking operation, high load capacity and long service life are important. The power consumption can be increased as required by variable series and parallel connection.
When selecting the brake chopper or braking resistor, it is important to bear in mind that gearless systems feed back much more energy than geared systems. As a result, it is possible that twice as much energy is fed back for the same size of frequency inverter.
When converting a system, it is absolutely necessary to calculate the braking chopper or braking resistor design. The braking resistors of the SXLG series score with a robust aluminum housing and easy installation. The high load resistors SHPA have a low temperature rise due to a heat conducting housing.
