Where can I find information on dynamic braking resistors to use with the Altivar drives?

Issue:
Where can I find information on dynamic braking resistors to use with the Altivar drives?

Product Line:
All Altivar Drives

Environment:
All

Cause:
Needs to know if the drives come with a DB resistor?

Resolution:
The braking resistor is not included, and if needed must be purchased separately.
In the US, we have partnered with a resistor company named Powerohm to provide a full range of options.
See attached document for information on sizing and selecting DB resistors from Powerohm.
Note that any technical questions related to the resistors themselves should be directed to Powerohm and the document includes their contact information.
