Resistors for filter and brake applications

Ensure drive systems and their accompanying brake resistors withstand harsh marine conditions. Consider salt air, high humidity, and strong vibrations when selecting the appropriate high power resistors for DC power grids. These robust resistors are available in different versions: water- or air-cooled, open or sealed housing (up to IP66), in different materials, connectors and with or without a thermal switch.

Danotherm has developed thermal models and thermal simulations to find the optimal size for the application. Depending on the model, power resistances up to 1.5 Megawatts and pulse load capacity up to 380 times the rated power are possible.

Applying high power resistors in your maritime DC power systems?

In recent years, end-users increasingly demand Certificates of Conformity or Authenticity, especially in marine applications. Danotherm is adept at meeting these requirements, offering documentation on material origin and process conformity, such as for steel and welding. Other possibilities include FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) with the customer and/or an accrediting company such as Lloyd’s, DSV, or RINA.

In close cooperation with Astrolkwx, Danotherm’s resistor division is dedicated to designing and producing advanced, optimized resistors. Welcoming new design challenges that drive our customers’ success. Danotherm’s range of high power resistors is highly recommended for marine applications. Our experienced consultants are happy to advise you on choosing the right product for your onboard power systems. Astrolkwx makes sure you will always meet your special electrical and mechanical specifications!
