Our high power resistors are used in connection with power electronics equipment and frequency converters for motor control. Danotherm specializes in power resistors for maritime and hybrid bus and truck applications and has developed thermal models that are used in thermal simulations to find the optimal size for the application.
Robustness, high power and excellent lifetime
Particularly in marine applications, drive systems and their accompanied brake resistors must be fit to withstand harsh environmental conditions. Salt air, high humidity, and strong vibration determine the type of resistor that is most suitable.
Depending on the model, power resistances up to 1.5 Megawatts and pulse load capacity up to 380 times the rated power are possible.
These robust resistors can be supplied in different versions: water- or air-cooled, open or sealed housing (up to IP66), in different materials, connectors and with or without a thermal switch.
Depending on the model, power resistances up to 1.5 Megawatts and pulse load capacity up to 380 times the rated power are possible. Our experienced consultants advise you which high power resistor is most suitable for your applications.

Customer specific solutions, based upon your requirements
In close cooperation with KWx, Danotherm’s resistor division is dedicated to designing and producing advanced, optimized resistors and welcoming new design challenges that drive our customers’ success.
Test and certification possibilities
In recent years, particularly in marine applications, Certificates of Conformity or Authenticity are often required by the end-user. Danotherm is accustomed to such demands and can provide documents on the origin of materials and the conformity of processes e.g. for steel and welding. Other possibilities include FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) with the customer and/or an accrediting company such as Lloyd’s, DSV, or RINA.
