Electrical Resistors

The Power of Ideas

The German company Schniewindt is an independent, single family owned company that has continued since its founding in 1829. It is among the leaders in the manufacturing and design of electrical resistors covering a multitude of applications.

Heating Resistance Technology

It includes development, production and sales for the fields of gas, liquid and solid heating. Also designed for applications in explosive risk environments and in mines (gas blast), these applications reflect the company’s great know-how.

Electrical Resistance Technology

It includes the development and custom manufacturing of high voltage and high power resistors for filter applications, damping circuits, neutral resistors, etc. for HTCC & FACTS networks. All this is reflected in the multitude of projects carried out on an international scale.

Energy Measurement Technology

It includes voltage and/or current measurement solutions based on proven measurement sensor technologies. Upon specific request, optical-digital data transfer systems are offered for future substations with a fully digitalized and automated orientation.
Schniewindt also uses its know-how based on almost 200 years of existence and experience in the field of heating for specialized industrial processes and electrical resistance technologies for transport equipment in the most modern spheres. Schniewindt manufactures preheating systems for diesel engines in the maritime and rail transport sectors, as well as braking resistors for drive system technologies in the maritime sector (liner, offshore equipment), including heavy industrial sector.
