Are Brake Controllers Necessary?
Brakes and brake controllers are critical components of an electrically powered machine — they hold a driven load or stop the motor. For any mechanism that operates with brakes, a controller helps ensure safe and effective function.
If a motor is not running at full speed, friction can cause the brake to drag and stop the motor before it reaches zero voltage, which can wear down the brake and reduce its service life. A brake controller works to activate and manage braking action smoothly and efficiently by providing controlled deceleration. It protects the brake and enables better long-term performance.
Brake Controller Types We Offer
When you need braking equipment for a specific application, we have knowledgeable staff ready to identify and provide the correct component from our extensive inventory. We have several brake and brake controller products available to fit your requirements, such as:
- Electric brake controller: Carotron precision brake controllers deliver two preset current levels and work with various applications and input voltages.
- Magnetic particle brakes and controllers: Whether you need magnetic particle brakes or a clutch or hysteresis brake, get the right equipment to handle applications such as torque limiting, load simulation and tensioning rolls of film, wire or foil.
- Spring-set disc brakes: We offer a wide selection of double C-face brakes from Dings Dynamic Group. These brakes operate with an internal electromagnet that allows the rotating discs and motor shaft to move freely and instantly stops the discs upon release.
