Traction resistors

We have long experience of resistors for traction applications, one of the harshest environments a resistor can be installed in.

We work with railway operators in the Nordic countries with upgrading and modernizing of existing resistors for the demands of the 21th century. Most vehicles are equipped with some type of braking resistor, convection cooled or fan cooled. In many cases where original equipment designs are not available or no longer manufactured, we can design functionally equivalent replacements.

Together with Swedish Transport Administration, a test resistor has been developed, a special load resistor used in railway supply stations.
