Electromagnetic brakes

To safely hold loads on reversible inclined and declined conveyors, electromagnetic brakes are used. They operate via rectifiers. The braking force is applied directly to the rotor shaft of the drum motor. When power to the motor is disrupted, the brake will close automatically. Special advantage: Electromagnetic brakes are quiet and operate with low wear.

Note: Electromagnetic brakes are available only for asynchronous drum motors.
