Damping resistors

Damping resistors for a higher level of functional safety and service life

REO damping resistors can absorb and temporarily store higher impulse loads.

Thanks to the special winding technology, the wires of the damping resistors are separated spatially and therefore ensure a higher dielectric strength.

REO damping resistors are available in the protection classes IP00 to IP 65 and provide a high level of functional safety and service life.

Additional advantages:

- Higher level of mechanical protection

- Quiet

- Low susceptibility to vibrations and oscillations

  • REOhm series 153

    Max. continous power: 360 W

    BW 156
    • Resistance values: 7 - 620 Ohm
    • Continuous power: 160 - 360 W
    • max. operating voltage: 900 V

    As BW (Braking resistor)


    When an electric machine operates as a generator (Electromotive brake), the braking resistor protects the machine from a voltage rise in the intermediate circuit. The current reduces als the speed of the machine. 


    As R (Charging resistor, damping resistor, filter resistance, etc.)


    The charging resistor is a current limiting resistor for the charging and discharging of capacitors and limitates for example the current flowing into the intermediate circuit capacitor inrush current. For this the device must be designed for a high single pulse energy and nominal voltage. The inductance of the resistor contributes to limit the inrush current, so wirewound resistors are the right choice.


    As UL version


    In addition to the high protection class IP66, the profile resistors REOhm 153 are also UL-certified and have a power of 100 W up to 400 W (also as combination).
