Metallux Wire Resistors

BEC Distribution, the sole UK distributor for Metallux, now stocks the full range of Metallux Wire Resistors.

Wire Resistors are robust and temperature-proof, and are almost completely resistant to environmental influences.

Due to their construction, they are capable of withstanding overload conditions – the resistance material used in the design enables the energy content of the pulses to be quickly converted into heat.

The casing design and the type and level of cooling will allow continuous operation. High resistance values can be combined with low inductance, enabling high voltages to be used. The resistors can be used in serial or parallel circuits.

Applications include brake resistors in machines and systems, cranes, cable and chain hoists, gate drives, earth resistors and protective resistors. They can also used as loading and preloading resistors for industrial applications and in electrical and hybrid vehicles.
