Corrib® resistors are ideal for applications involving high currents at very low resistance values-as low as 0.1 ohm for the 300 Watt unit. These large, heavy-duty resistors are designed to withstand frequent start-stop cycles characteristic of motor starting, dynamic braking and other similar applications. Special order units are available to accommodate up to 1500 watts.
Corribs®are manufactured with corrugated resistive wire. To accelerate cooling, the wire is securely fused to the ceramic core by the protective vitreous enamel coating to improve durability. Corrib resistors are hollow-core units which can be securely fastened to chassis surfaces with thru bolts and brackets.
