Resistors are part of electrical circuits that, for example, rectify current produced in alternating voltage, thereby facilitating the most efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable energy transfer possible. Resistors are used again in the eventual conversion of rectified current into usable alternating voltage.
EBG’s resistors regulate voltage, for instance, in power electronics of frequency converters for locomotives or wind turbines as well as in modern medical equipment. Their advantage is a very low temperature and voltage coefficient, a high degree of stability, high-temperature resistance, and very low tolerances
EBG is leading in the development of high-power resistors that are particularly compact and powerful. EBG’s high-power resistors regulate power peaks, such as those that occur when electric high-end devices are switched on and off, and they divert power surges.
In offshore wind farms and substations, they assist in effecting the transmission of energy produced on direct current basis. They help deliver the energy safely and efficiently to the supply areas. Our resistors are also used for the dampening of voltage peaks, in magnetic resonance imaging or X-ray units.
EBG’s high-power resistors also help regulate the rotational speed of electric motors that are used in industrial equipment and in vehicles such as trams or locomotives. Leading manufacturers of electric motors, medical equipment and frequency converters rely on EBG’s power resistors because of their powerful performance and the long-term reliability of their functionality.
