Danotherm power resistors are used in various applications

Danotherm Power Resistors are used in connection with power electronic equipment. Some examples are: snubbers, voltage dividers, de-charge resistors and start- or charging resistors.

An important application is brake resistors in connection with frequency converters for motor control. We can supply brake resistors as components for build-in or stand alone units.

In some applications the brake energy can be reused as heating energy. For this Danotherm has a dedicated water cooled aluminium compact solution.

The product range covers a wide field, from flat-, round- and wire wound resistors over aluminium housed compact brake resistors and Steel Grid Brake Resistors to huge modules constructed of water cooled break resistors.

Danotherm member of NIBE Wind Solutions

NIBE Element Wind solutions is a leading supplier of heating and control systems for wind turbines. As member of this group, Danotherm supplies LVRT (Low Voltage Ride Through) dump resistors that can dissipate excessive energy during a grid failure or grid undervoltage. Danotherm resistors are also used in wind turbines as dynamic brake resistors when pitching the wind blades or rotating the nacel.
