Industry Solution

Resistors for Elevator Market

One of the key features of elevators is the need to be very fast, accurate and smooth with braking systems. This kind of braking with very high reliability is achieved by using Dynamic Braking Resistors (DBR). Elevators support one only dimensional movement(up or down) and may carry empty load to full capacity.
