UL and CSA Recognized as a component for use in motion control systems. Approved in accordance with UL508, 17th edition and CSAC 22.2 No. 14-13, 12th edition.
HIGH TORQUE COMPACT DESIGNBecause permanent magnets are used versus springs, the overall size of the brakes is smaller for a given torque size. Because the brakes are smaller, their weight is also less, which can be an advantage in some applications.
CONTROLLED STOPSince torque is directly controlled by flux, a brake can be tuned to provide a softer stop in an application versus having full torque applied.
EASILY CUSTOMIZED FOR YOUR APPLICATIONBoth the mounting flange and the output hub and armature assembly can be easily modified to fit your existing application.
ZERO BACKLASHThe PMB Series of Brakes have a spring mounted armature, which eliminates backlash in the brake.
NO DRAG TORQUEWhen brakes are released, an airgap is present which completely releases the armature resulting in zero drag.
HIGH OPERATING TEMPERATURESThe standard magnetic material used in the brakes can accommodate temperatures up to 140 degrees celsius. If an application requires it, special material is also available on some sizes to accommodate higher temperatures.
NOTE:Brakes require a variable power supply to make sure they are properly tuned for an application.
