Brake Motors

The electromagnetic disc brake is powered, either DC or three phase AC current, from a rectifier located in the motor terminal box. Brake motors are powerful motors to hold any action at a standstill in a power-off situation.

Brake motors are used in industries for conveyors, index mechanisms, machine tools, and overhead doors and other running equipment.

Brakes should be sized for adequate thermal capacity and the ability to perform the correct stopping time. When looking for a replacement brake motor you’ll need the following information – full load speed in minutes, motor rating in KW, load inertia, number of stops per hour, stopping distance and stopping time (if required), type of load, ambient temperature and lastly, the IP protection requirement.

We carry a wide variety of brake motors including industrial duty, stop and hold spring set brakes. Contact us for more information.
