Resistor Reohm Bw 156

Max continuous power: 1500 W


Braking resistor for drives with frequency converters of low to medium power. Mounting inside and outside the control cabinet is possible.


  • quick connection
  • short-circuit protected
  • small dimensions with high performance
  • very good heat dissipation
  • high resistance at overload
  • optionally with contact protection and temperature switch optionally also for aggressive environments (e.g. salt mist)
  • installation is also possible outside the control cabinet compact
  • also with UL certification see the overview “UL-certified products from REO”

In the event of destruction, the resistor becomes high-impedance. Each series is available with a temperature switch. The specified performance values were measured at a horizontal position of the resistors in the air with a distance of min. 100mm to the substrate. The power values refer to the standard products with a normal tolerance of +/- 10% at an ambient temperature of 20°C.
