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
The Ceramic Carbon Disc Resistor is designed to provide to optimum solution to many Power Electronics applications, notably soft starting and HV discharging.
Inherently non-inductive and capable of withstanding transient high voltage impulses, the Carbon Disc series is similarly effective with respect to dumping braking circuit, overvoltage protection and crowbar discharge applications.
