GENERAL

   
 

Ceramic Carbon Resistors can be offered separately, in matched sets with respect to Resistance Value, or pre-assembled for ease of installation. Resistor Discs can also be supplied in stacks, marked and numbered for optimum flatness and parallelism.

It is generally recommended that HVR carry out any assembly work since using our specialised jigs, we will ensure that Resistor Discs are aligned correctly and that the appropriate mounting force is applied. This is important not only for mechanical reliability, but in minimising the risk of electrical activity between successive resistor discs and the disc / terminal interface.

Wherever possible, a Resistor Assembly will be designed using standard components, thus enabling us to offer the most cost effective solution.

 
 

Glass Fibre Pultruded Tie Rod onto which the Resistor Discs are mounted

Aluminium Hexagon End Stops, pinned at either end

Schnorr Disc Springs which provide the compressive mounting force (≥ 350 kg)

Insulated Stand Offs (Glastic) for ease of installation

Cranked Aluminium Terminals for Electrical Connection

 
 
 

In some applications, it may be necessary to include other components so that the Resistor Assembly will meet Electrical, Thermal and Mechanical Design Specifications.

These may include:

Using a High Tensile Steel Bolt and Insulating Bushes for UL94 V-0 Regulations

Aluminium Ferrule / Spacers for increased Average Power Rating

Aluminium Cooling Fins for increased Average Power Rating

Water Cooled Plates for increased Average Power Rating. If required, Cooling Plates can be electrically isolated from the Resistor Discs.

High Current Terminals for Optimum Current Distribution

High Current Terminal / Spacers for Improved Average Power Rating

Customised Components where required e.g. Tinned Copper Terminals

Customer Specific Components e.g. Thermal Switches
