Self-braking motors

Brake motors are created by coupling a single-phase or three-phase motor with an electromagnetic brake unit. They provide precise control during the clamping phases and are mainly used for:

  • reduce machining times by lowering the slowdown periods of machinery;
  • carry out positioning and stationing;
  • meet the requirements of safety regulations.

We have three types of brake with passive action and spring braking ( TYPE S - TYPE B - TYPE AC ) and one with positive action and magnetic attraction braking ( TYPE P ).

Passive braking also works when the power supply fails, so they are safety devices.

As of 1st July 2021, self-braking motors must also meet the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 on energy efficiency.

TYPES OF SELF-BRAKING MOTORS

TYPE S

Progressive brake with a single braking surface operating on direct current obtained from a special rectifier housed in the terminal box.

TYPE B

High torque brake with double braking surface operating on direct current obtained from a special rectifier placed in the terminal box.
More >

TYPE AC

Adjustable high torque brake with double braking surface operating on three-phase alternating current.
More >

TYPE P

High torque brake operating on direct current through positive electromagnetic action.
