What is the part number for braking resistors for the ATV600 series drives?

Published date: 15 November 2018

Issue:
Customer wants to add a braking resistor to the ATV600 series drive.

Product line:
Altivar Process, ATV630, ATV660, ATV650, ATV680

Environment:
all

Cause:
No resistors listed in the catalog

Resolution:
The ATV6xx process drive does not have the DC bus connections, PA and PB, to add a brake resistor.  The target application for this product line is pumps and fans which normally do not need brake function.
If the application has high inertia, try increasing DEC time or change to freewheel stop mode.
If a low DEC is required and dynamic braking is needed to prevent OBF or SOF faulting, then consider using the ATV900 series VFDs.
