Brake resistor takes 2kW peak power in a 42.2x27.86x6.09mm footprint

July 28, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Vincotech's ultra-compact brake resistor module Q992-A has been engineered to absorb higher energy pulses for motion control brake chopper applications.

Th Q992-A brake resistor relies on highly reliable thick-film-on-ceramic technology with 4kV isolation to the heat sink, an ultra-low profile and a fast-on terminal. The resistor delivers excellent performance at a resistance value of 400 Ω / 200 W (tolerance 20%) and 2 kW peak power. The 42.2x27.86x6.09mm design enables easy, economical assembly: it is simply mounted to a heat sink using pre-applied thermal interface material. The S30814-Q992-A is already in production.
