The conventional electromagnetic power on brake (also known as a single face friction brake or flange mounted brake) gives a braking effect when the coil is energised. The power on brake can be used in both a static and dynamic application, as the construction includes an asbestos free friction material embedded in the working face.
The electromagnetic power on brake is used to stop a rotating load when the electrical power is turned on and can be supplied with various armature styles (C.L., C.C. or C.R., see datasheet) to suit the intended design layout. These consist of an armature plate and return spring (in C.L. form), Read More...or an integral hub with a bore and key way in C.C. or C.R. formats.
Our electromagnetic power on brake also comes in a range of high torque (multi-pole) versions, which give a higher static torque within the same envelope. These are generally used for static holding applications, but may be used for limited occasional dynamic use, as they generally do not have an embedded friction ring in the working face.
This friction brake has a single face. Due to its solid construction, the power-on brake is backlash-free (torsionally rigid).
These brakes are suited to the automation, military and medical industries and have been installed into food processing, collating and packaging machines. The power-on brake is also suitable for door entry systems, patient treatment tables and winding equipment.
Our engineers can customise a design to reduce envelope size depending on your requirements. Lead and termination options can also be custom-made to suit your request.
SG Transmission will deliver you a ready to use, plug and play brake.
ISO Class B insulation available as standard (105°c) or higher on request.
This is a type 52 power-on brake, if you are looking for an electromagnetic power-off brake, see our permanent magnet power off brake or our spring applied brake.
