WHBSA are water cooled, high power resistors. The power ranges from 19-253kW. They consist of a steel tank with resistor tube elements fitted. The tank is fully welded.

This type of resistors is most suited as brake resistor for busses and trucks. For marine applications we recommend to use WHBS or WHDN series.
