Neutral Earthing Resistor
Neutral Earth Resistors (NER) protect equipment from damage in the event of earth faults.
Braking resistors aim to dissipate the energy generated by a motor during deceleration, preventing damage to the drive due to overvoltage ensuring it is safely stopped.
Braking resistors dissipate the energy generated by the slowing motor (as heat) to ensure that the voltage rise is kept to safe levels to prevent damage to the drive. These resistors can also help to lower the wear on braking components which can extend equipment life, enable faster braking and eliminate the risk of overheating.
