DIScharge Resistors - high efficiency bleeding resistor

DIScharging resistors are used to discharge the DC link capacitors after an electric car has been switched off. Preferably they are used in inverters.

DIScharge Resistors: What are the advantages of our bleeding resistors?

The high-voltage-resistant and non-inductive design enables various circuit designs. Our discharge resistors are characterized by a compact and lightweight design, which also allows mounting on printed circuit boards.

We are happy to integrate several types of resistors in one package. This also saves size and weight.

Further advantages:

  • High robustness
  • Extensive possibilities for connection to heat sinks
  • Vibration and pulse resistant
  • AEC-Q200 compliant
  • Customized electrical connection

Bleeding resistor with high dielectric strength and light weight.

The high dielectric strength of the resistor enables it to be used in inverters with system voltages of up to 1.5 kV.

Thanks to our process know-how, we can manufacture bleeding resistors that are particularly small. Due to the special circuit design, as well as the constant power pulse discharge, the size is reduced again compared to the single pulse application. This is because smaller design also means lower weight.
