High Voltage Resistors

High voltage resistors from REO

Resistors that withstand high voltages and high temperatures

High voltage resistors are subject to particular requirements as a result of their areas of application.
The highest level of functional safety and service life paired with an extreme level of robustness against adverse environmental pressures are as a result absolutely essential.


REO high voltage resistors undergo the following tests:
• Climatic fluctuation testing
• Vibration and shock testing, simulated service life testing
• Self-heating measurement
• High voltage testing
• Insulation measurement

    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.
