Frequently asked questions
Are braking resistors available for the ATV12 drives?
28 September 2021Issue:
ATV12 breaking resistors available
All models and serial numbers
The ATV12 drives do not have built in braking units so an external braking module is required.
In the USA, braking module VW3A11701 can be connected to the drive and the braking resistor can then be connected to the braking module.
Powerohm is a 3rd party vendor that Schneider Electric in the USA has partnered with to provide DB resistors, since some resistors in our Global documents are not released for sale here.
For specific DB Resistor selection, feel free to contact Powerohm at 800-838-4694.
