Power Resistors


MS Resistances range of speciality resistors is suitable for a range of applications including:

  • Load bank resistors – to simulate electrical loads
  • Neutral earthing resistors – to limit fault currents within a three-phase power transformer or generator
  • Damping resistors – to absorb harmonic currents in order to limit the distortion transmitted to the network
  • Air cooled motor starting resistors – to reduce starting current
  • Marine braking resistors – to apply a load to dissipate kinetic energy when braking or stopping a vessel
  • Pre-insertion / discharge resistors – to limit transients during circuit energisation

Resistor banks can be supplied with integrated switches, current transformers and/or voltage transformers.
