MCB Industrie / Vishay
MCB Industrie SAS provides resistors and precision sensors. The company offers power resistors, such as thick film, wirewound, water cooled, high energy disk, stainless steel, and sheated resistors; and position sensors, including rotary potentiometers, linear potentiometers, membrane sensors, and magnetic sensors. It serves aerospace, defense, transportation, energy, railway, windpower, offroad, and industry sectors.
MCB Industrie offers a range of solutions for the railway market, including stainless-steel breaking, damping, discharge and snubber high-power resistors and heaters, including air, shaft, water and plinth, and power supplies and transformers. Quality and reliability have made MCB Industrie a reference supplier to the aerospace, railway, automotive and the industrial vehicles industry.
MCB Industrie S.A. resistors are used as motion sensors in avionics, military, and space applications and as power resistors in traction, energy distribution, and various other industrial applications. MCB Industrie S.A., a manufacturer of specialty resistors for professional market segments.
Stainless-steel resistors range up to megawatts and the very high-power resistors can be used as breaking resistors or load banks.
Sheathed resistors range from 100W to 100kW. The performance and reliability of the sheathed resistors find an appropriate use in heating and air conditioning systems (HVAC) in rolling materials. MCB Industrie produces air heaters, shaft heaters, water heaters, plinth heaters and absorption groups.
Crowbars / damping resistors are resistive systems for energy conversion.
Filter pre-charge / discharge resistors range from 5W to 1,200W. These very strong resistors can adapt to the most severe regimes and have a joule capacity and a high overload.
Snubber resistors range from 250W to 750W planar resistors (RCEC).
