What options are available to offer dynamic brake kits for ATV58 drives over 100 HP?

Contact your SquareD distributor or field office for assistance.
SquareD - Schneider Electric does not offer a dynamic brake kit for the ATV58HC10N4 and larger Altivar 58 drives.
Other options are available.
These size drives were originally designed primarily for use with variable torque loads. It is not typical for variable torque loads to require dynamic braking torque. Therefore, these drives do not include internal DB transistors with the typical PA & PB terminals for connecting to an external DB resistor kit.
There are other companies that offer DC chopper, Dynamic Braking kits that can be installed on these drives by connecting to the DC bus of the drive.
