Load And Discharge Resistors

The current limiting resistor for your capacitor

The charging resistor is a current limiting resistor for the loading and discharge of capacitors and limits for example the in-rush current that flows into the intermediate circuit capacitor.

The device must be laid out for a high level of single pulse energy and nominal voltage for this purpose. The inductance of the resistor also contributes to the limiting of the in-rush current, for this reason REO wire resistors are the correct choice.

  • REOHM series 154

    Max. continous power: 200 W

    BW 156
    • Resistance values: 2,2 - 500 Ohm
    • Continuous power: 50 - 200 W
    • max. operating voltage: 900 V

    The braking resistor REOHM 154 protects the machine from a voltage rise in the intermediate circuit, if an electric machine operates as a generator (Electromotive brake). The current reduces also the speed of the machine. 


    The serie REOHM 154 is available as braking resistor (series BW) or as charging resistor (series R).


    As 154 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.

    The resistor NTT RD 158 is a water-cooled damping resistor, which is used for traction in railway applications. The resistor is used in series with filter capacitors in the 1.5 kV and 3 kV DC network. 


    For this purpose, 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 - here are wirewound resistors the right choice.


    The advantage of the resistance unit NTT R D158 is that 4 damping resistors are housed in one unit. This means a compact construction and low cost when connecting the resistor.


    REO high-voltage resistors are designed, produced and certified specifically for the railway technology. The specially designed winding technology allows a higher withstand voltage due to the spatial separation of the wires. The use of railway-compatible, high quality materials, together with the complete encapsulation in profile design lead to protection classes up to IP 65.
