Magnetic Particle Brakes and Clutches
Hysteresis Brakes and Controls
by Placid Industries
Carotron offers a range of products by Placid Industries. Check out the magnetic particle brakes and clutches as well as hysteresis brakes and controls. Slip torque is precise, silent and smooth, and torque is controlled by varying input current.
- Tensioning (unwinding / rewinding) rolls of film, foil & wire.
- Load Simulation : for testing motors & drivetrains.
- Torque Limiting : overload protection, capping, soft start / stop
– Magnetic Particle Brakes – Provides adjustable tension for unwinding (payout) webs, load simulation (to test stepper motors, gear motors and mechanisms), and soft stops.
– Magnetic Particle Clutch – Provides adjustable tension for rewinding webs, torque limiting, load simulation, and soft starts.
– Hysteresis Brake – Provides tension for unwinding wire, fiber optic cable, and narrow webs, as well as load simulation for testing electric motors.
*Note: Placid Industries also offers custom brakes and clutches for a variety of needs – call Carotron for details!
