The minimum Ohmic value for Braking Resistors (R)for the Altivar 71 Drive is mentioned in the catalog because if the value is too low it can damage the Braking Transistor (V=IR). The DC bus level for the braking is always the same, so if R is too low, the current increases which can damage the Braking Transistor.
