Some applications require the use of a brake in combination with a motor. KAG can also support you here and combine the right brake for your application with the drive. A distinction is made between quiescent current and working current brakes. If, for example, a load must be held at a standstill via the drive, the addition of a brake is usually a good choice.
Quiescent current brakes / spring-applied brakes
The quiescent current brakes stop when no current is applied – therefore they are also referred to as “power-off brakes”. Thus this type of brake is often used as a safety or holding brake. Quiescent current brakes are available in two different versions. One is a spring-applied brake, the other is a permanent magnet brake.
Working current brakes
Working current brakes are only active when current flows – this is how the brakes are also referred to as “power-on brakes”. The working current brakes are available as electromagnetic brakes.
- Electromagnetic power-on brake
- Coil housing chromated
- Insulation class E
- Protection class IP40
- Torsion and cogging torque free
- Operating voltage = 24V (special voltages on request)
- For further information, please refer to the respective data sheet
