External braking resistors (power class 50/75/100 W) for EC/BLDC motors

During the braking process of an electric motor, a voltage (braking energy) is generated. This braking energy can interfere with the motor control or generate an error message. 
To prevent this, the braking energy can be converted into heat by means of the motor control system and the braking resistor. Depending on the motor control system used, higher speeds can also be achieved by means of a braking resistor.
