Self-braking motors

Self-braking motors are made by coupling a single-phase or three-phase motor and an electromagnetic brake unit, they are adopted mainly for:

  • reduce work time by reducing the slowdown times of machinery;
  • perform positioning and / or stabling;
  • Security requirements.

We have three types of negative braking with spring type (S-TYPE; B-TYPE; AC-TYPE) and positive action braking with magnetic attraction (P-TYPE).
The characteristics of these brakes are described in more detail in the various sections.

TYPES OF SELF-BRAKING MOTORS

S-TYPE

Progressive brake with single braking surface functioning to direct current obtained by a special rectifier located in the terminal box.

B-TYPE

High torque brake with dual DC braking surface made by a special rectifier located in the terminal box.

AC-TYPE

AC three-phase adjustable high torque brake with dual braking surface running at three-phase alternating current.
More >

P-TYPE

DC High torque brake.
