A Load resistor is simply a primary resistive load used in an electrical circuit. The size of the load resistor and the resistance it offers are specific to the application where it is used. Read More
In most applications the load resistor is connected in parallel to the power source so that the maximum voltage is fed to the load.
In order to simulate an electrical load to test electrical equipment, a dummy load is used which is nothing but a load resistor. Load resistors are very frequently used for modelling and analyzing the behavior of electrical circuits. Therefore, load resistors are also referred to as test resistors.
Applications of load/test resistors are:
KWK has expertise to compute and design customised application specific resistors that are particularly good at handling high pulsed powers. Dynamic Braking Resistors from KWK come with varied resistance, power and current ratings. KWK Resistors also require very little service and maintenance.
These heavy-duty resistors are designed to be rugged so as to withstand heavy loads and frequent start-stop cycles. Resistors come in different form factors like edge-wound and wire-wound resistors.Read Less
