Brake Motors

Brake Motors

All ELMOR motors, both three-phase and single-phase, are available with brake. These motors, on the non-drive end,  are equipped with a electro-magnetic spring-pressure brake with negative action. In absence of power supply, the brake stops the motor instantly (see tables).

The brake is attached to the motor through a cast-iron rear cover. The shafts of these motors are made by a special  steel.

Direct current Brake “DC”

The direct current brakes are powered through a rectifier, usually connected to the motor terminal board  .

We use an high-speed rectifier

Alternating current Brake “AC”

The alternating current brakes are usually powered through the motor terminal board.

Upon request, we can provide additional terminal board.

Brake motors Serie S

The brakes Series S feature a reduced braking torque, and are particularly used in applications that do not need a quick braking, such as woodworking machines.

They feature a cast iron fan (balanced), which acts as a brake: the fan also perform the function of flywheel

This Dc Brakes can be powered directly by the motor through the rectifier.

These motors are compact and cheaper compared with traditional brake
