The spring-applied electromagnetic brake has proved itself in a great many applications. Designed for DC operation it can, with an integral rectifier, be used with an AC single-phase supply. Braking is affected by spring pressure with brake release being by way of the electromagnetic field. The brake is therefore "fail safe". If required, the brake can be manually operated (optional).
This brake is available in 6 sizes to cover braking torques from 8 to 360 Nm. All versions have the advantage of torque adjustment by means of a central adjusting collar. The brake design makes for easy modification to suit particular requirements e.g. to accept tacho drive, flame, or explosion proofing for mine duties or increased corrosion resistance. It can also be fitted with a micro switch to control brake operation.
