There are two main resistor categories in Heatterm selection, Power resistors and Heating elements. Power resistors are divided into two application uses, Start & Brake resistors and Load resistors.
- Start & break resistors are primarily used in high current electrical motors to enable controlled starting and breaking processes keeping the electricity network stabile. Sometimes the surplus electrical energy from braking resistors is converted into heat energy for further use as heating railway wagons in winter time.
- Load resistors are used for releasing great voltage loads in short time period.
Heating elements are used for heat treatment of different materials in various industrial uses as ceramic and glass melting ovens, melting of aluminium compounds and heat treatment furnaces.
There are over 1000 resistor variations already manufactured and new customer specific variations are made for each customer need.
