OTIS DBR Transistor Burn

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

We have an OTIS 212MVF and it burn the transistor Darlington of the Brake, regenerative resistances, I changed it and it worked ok for 8 days, and today it burned again, I place a new one and it burned rigth away. I checked the resistors, the suppresors and the diode that has to do with the circuit and everything seems ok.

Check the braking resistor and wiring for a ground fault.
