How to connect a braking resistor to MX2 series VSD

Updated February 15, 2022

Resistor Selection



Check the minimum connectable resistance for the VSD. Do not connect a resistor with a resistance less than the rated minimum.

Refer to the below table for braking resistor rated for a 10% ED. To calculate the required power and resistance ratings manually, please refer to Appendix 5 of the Users Manual (Page 616).


Wiring the resistor

Use the below wiring diagram to connect the braking resistor.Resistors can be connected in series or parallel to get the desired properties.


MX2 Parameters

Configure parameters as desired on the VSD using the below reference.
