When variable speed drive systems are braking they generate power that must be dissipated. If the excess power is not dissipated, the drive system can lose control of the process due to an overvoltage trip.
Bonitron Line Regens replace traditional braking transistor and resistor options that waste energy as heat during drive braking. Instead of dissipating braking energy as heat in a resistor, Line Regen solutions return this energy to the power grid. This reduces demand from the utility, which equates to ample energy savings.
The Bonitron Line Regen is efficient and small enough to be integrated into the drive cabinet. This eliminates excess resistor wiring and cooling costs.
For applications above 600A, a transistor/resistor and regen can be used together. See our Braking and Regen Brochure or contact us for more information.
