Electrical resistors are used to regulate the amount of current in a circuit. By limiting the amount of current with a resistor, a voltage drop occurs over the resistor. The ratio between voltage and current is the resistance value (called resistance). According to Ohm’s Law, resistance is 1 ohm when a voltage of 1 volt leads to a current of 1 ampere. Depending on the structure of the resistor and the resulting properties, we supply resistors in the range of 0.05W to as much as 1MW.
Batenburg Mechatronics specialises in precision resistors and power resistors.
Precision and ultra-precision resistors are usually constructed from a foil element with high accuracy (absolute and relative) and in stability (long and short term). Depending on your requirements, several versions are available. From hermetically-sealed versions for meteorology and reference applications, to SMD housings for handheld measuring equipment. Resistance networks with multiple resistors are also possible. To make the right choice, Batenburg has several engineers who will be happy to advise you.
Power resistors are often used for electrical power management so that energy can be dissipated safely if necessary. This guarantees the safety of the electrical system or network. The power resistors are subdivided per application. We distinguish between braking resistors, star-point resistors, ballast resistors, starting resistors and adjustable resistors. Various functional solutions are possible and can be tailored to your requirements, from the design phase to delivery.
Through years of experience we are happy to assist you with advice in order to arrive at an optimal solution for your application. Our production department of power resistors is regularly tested for quality and safety, so that you are assured of delivery of a high-quality product.
