Low-Cost Brake Resistor Absorbs High-Energy Pulses In Motor Control


Vincotech has unveiled a new type of ultra-compact brake resistor designed to absorb higher energy pulses in motion control brake chopper applications. It offers utmost reliability at a remarkably low price, says the firm.

This new Q992-A is designed with a resistance value of 400 Ω / 200 W (tolerance 20%) and 2 kW peak power.

The resistor features a highly reliable thick-film-on-ceramic technology with 4kV isolation to the heat sink, an ultra-low profile and a fast-on terminal.

The new design enables easy, economical assembly. It is simply mounted to a heat sink using pre-applied thermal interface material.

Measuring 42.2 x 27.86 x 6.09 mm, this inrush current resistor is extremely compact. The S30814-Q992-A is already in production. For more details, visit https://www.vincotech.com/products/brake-resistor.html
