Cressall Resistors is a leading supplier of power resistors globally. Our core capability is the safe and reliable dissipation of surplus electrical energy that cannot be stored or re-used.

We design, manufacture and sell power resistors for several market applications including power generation, high and medium voltage power distribution, marine and offshore electrical systems, drives and controls for cranes, hoists and industrial machinery, rail traction and standby power systems.

We have an enviable distribution network to serve our customers globally. Recently, Cressall launched its EV2 water-cooled brake resistor for the electric vehicle market - a small device which can continuously and safely dispose of regenerated current during braking when batteries are full.

The UK Intelligent Systems Research Institute (ISRI) was formed to provide specialist research and development expertise to European businesses, in particular SMEs. ISRI benefits from its location between the universities of Nottingham, Leicester and Loughborough and has access to over 500 researchers, scientists and engineers through its innovation network.

ISRI is focused on providing high-quality R&D in the area of intelligent systems and to achieve this is divided into several research groups each with their own individual specialisms, including:-

  • Analogue, digital and micro electronics
  • Microcontrollers and embedded software
  • Novel sensor design and development
  • Advanced control and decision making systems, (including neural networks, fuzzy logic and artificial intelligence)
  • High-level software, data mining, semantic data interchange
  • Electrical, Mechanical and Chemical engineering
  • Thermal management and heat recovery
  • Energy systems, efficiency optimisation and renewable energy technologies

UK-ISRI has a long history of supporting SMEs in research, having successfully delivered and managed more than 250 national and international collaborative R&D projects over the last decade.
