    working with the @Thanos controller and the driver AASD-15A. Somewhere deep in the user manual I find a reference to a brake resistor. Is this needed, and if yes what would recommended power rating and value be?

    thanks!

    All the AASD-15A drives come with Brake resistor mounted on them. No need to buy separately...
