 Design Brakeresistor Home

In the operating instructions for your converter you will find the information concerning the specifications of the resistors that can be connected to it. Use these specifications to make your choice from our range of products. If there are no such specifications, follow this simple program to determine the appropriate resistor.
However, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
