REO AG starts an innovative product finder for brake resistors on

Calculating optimal braking resistance in seconds

›› Product finder helps in selecting the right braking resistor

REO AG has launched an innovative performance calculator with an integrated product finder. Interested parties can quickly find the necessary nominal output with the aid of the new website, as well as the ideal REO product via application enquiries.

Developers always face the same questions when searching for the right braking resistor: How do I design the resistor correctly? What continuous output is required with cyclic operation with a specific duty cycle? How can I optimally design my resistor?

The REO AG performance calculator with product finder provides solutions. Interested parties without technical knowledge can quickly find the right resistor on the website, which has been developed for this purpose. As well as a performance calculation in real time, the interested party is also notified directly of the ideal product, meaning that long consulting periods or delays in finding a product are reduced to a minimum.

“In practice it is always occurring that customers are using braking resistors which are either far too large or, considering what is relevant in application safety, too low.”, noted product developer and Board director Sven Reimann. The interested party can now get the right resistor or ohm value from and calculate or enter the corresponding continuous output before receiving a corresponding product suggestion from REO. This can be requested directly from the page.

The product finder is suitable for compact resistors, air and liquid-cooled resistors, damping or loading resistors, and resistors for aggressive environments. In addition, tailored special solutions can be seen by the interested party.

REO AG also offers further calculations via a specifications sheet developed specially for this purpose. The relevant specialist department carries out the in-depth calculations and makes contact with the interested party.

The new online offer from REO AG rigorously drives innovation and also shows new technological concepts of various new products on the market in a visually appealing manner.
