AC variable frequency drives are commonly used with a general purpose AC induction motor to form a reliable variable speed drive system. For applications that require faster deceleration rates, or where motor speeds are exceeding the synchronous speed set by the output frequency of the drive ( an overhauling load condition), a braking resistor is required. Braking resistors increase the braking torque capability of a variable frequency drive, producing faster and more controlled braking. The resistor dissipates regenerated power to keep the bus voltage from exceeding the rated limit of the drive. Standard units include resistors installed in a screened enclosure with a galvanized finish. Units are furnished with resistors wired to a terminal block with high temperature silicone or Teflon wire. Refer to the Enclosure Section of the catalog for enclosure details and finish options.
