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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
