Are braking resistor available for the ATV12 drives?

Issue:
Braking resistor
 
Product Line:
ATV12
 
Environment:
All models and serial numbers
 
Cause:
None
 
Resolution:
The ATV12 drives do not have built in braking units so an external braking module is required.
In the USA, braking module VW3A11701 can be connected to the drive and the braking resistor can then be connected to the braking module.
Powerohm is a 3rd party vendor that Schneider Electric in the USA has partnered with to provide DB resistors, since some resistors in our Global documents are not released for sale here.
For specific DB Resistor selection, feel free to contact Powerohm at 800-838-4694.
