SOMANET Braking Chopper 48V 500W is a braking chopper (also referred to as shunt or regen board) that consumes excessive energy  while a motor decelerates a load. 

When the motor is used for actively decelerating a load, electrical power will be regenerated. If the drives are supplied by a standard power supply (with no recuperation function), such regenerative operating points will cause overvoltage on the DC circuit, thus either the drive or the power supply will shut down.

To prevent this from happening, a shunt circuit is needed to burn this recuperated energy.

  • dissipates 430 W peak power 
  • dissipates up to 90 W continuous power if adequate cooling is provided

For use in conjunction with SOMANET Servo Nodes.
