Betatronix LLC Datasheets for Dynamic Braking Resistors (DBRs)

Dynamic braking resistors (DBRs) produce braking torque and absorb the high amounts of energy generated by stopping electric motors. They are used in variable-speed drive systems such as elevators, cranes, and trains.

Product Name Notes
Linear - Wirewound -- Series 2010 Resistance Range: 0.20% to 1.0% During our early years, Betatronix primarily manufactured precision rotary potentiometers. It wasn't until Texas Instruments offered us the opportunity to work on the fin position...
Rotary - Servo Mount -- Series 2000 Resistance Range: 0.20% to 1.0% Motor Potentiometer Assemblies have become extremely popular with system designers. In most applications, the potentiometer's performance is more critical than the motor's - yet the...
Rotary - Multi Gang -Switch Option -- Series 2030 Resistance Range: 0.20% to 1.0% Primarily manufactured with wirewound resistance elements, multi-turn potentiometers came into being because they offered better resolution and, in turn, better linearity. That benefit is less...
Concentric Shaft -- Series 2020 Resistance Range: 0.20% to 1.0% System designers' desire for weight and volume savings has created increased demand for potentiometers that perform multiple functions. The concentric shaft unit - having two...
Element/Wiper -- Series 8006 Resistance Range: 0.20% to 5.0% Designers are often unaware of the use and availability of potentiometer elements and sectors. When weight, space, mechanical packaging, torque or similar limitations prevent the...

Linear Element Only -- Series 8007
Linear With Rod End Bearings -- Series 8008
Resistance Range: 0.20% to 5.0% During our early years, Betatronix primarily manufactured precision rotary potentiometers. It wasn't until Texas Instruments offered us the opportunity to work on the fin position...
Rotary - Servo Mount -- Series 8003 Resistance Range: 0.20% to 5.0% Motor Potentiometer Assemblies have become extremely popular with system designers. In most applications, the potentiometer's performance is more critical than the motor's - yet the...
Rotary - Hollow Shaft -- Series 8001
Rotary - Multi Gang -Switch Option -- Series 8004
Rotary - Multi Turn -- Series 8002
Resistance Range: 0.20% to 5.0% Primarily manufactured with wirewound resistance elements, multi-turn potentiometers came into being because they offered better resolution and, in turn, better linearity. That benefit is less...
Panel Mount - Switch Option -- Series 8005 Resistance Range: 0.20% to 5.0% Today's sophisticated systems demand the use of ultra-precision components with extended reliability. Betatronix recognizes the need for such components and has reengineered previously available non-precision...
