NORCROSS, Ga. - Sept. 11, 2015 - PRLog -- STW Technic, a premier manufacturer of mobile controllers and measurement technology, today announced the addition of a Brake Chopper Unit to its portfolio of Off Highway Hybrid Technology Products.

The powerMELA-BC Brake Chopper Unit is a construction unit made of high-performance resistance elements with an integrated chopper unit. It was developed specifically for electronic brakes in mobile machines to protect against over-voltages. It can temporarily convert up to 500 kW of electrical energy into heat.

Some applications of the Brake Chopper Unit includes Diesel-electric travel drive, Diesel-electric hybrid drive (HEV), Battery-powered electric travel drive (BEV).

The powerMELA-BC Brake Chopper Unit is fully compatible with STW’s powerMELA e-machine and features integrated power electronics and a purely DC voltage connection. More information on the brake chopper unit is available at: http://www.stw-technic.com/products/electrification-products/powermela_bc-brake-chopper/

One of the advantages of the Brake Chopper Unit is the lack of complex wiring and the space and weight of additional housing. The compactness of the powerMELA component and simplicity of the unit is unmatched in the market for off highway hybrid technology.
