High-Cycle Brake Motors

April 13, 2006
Low-inertia, high-cycle brake motors incorporate a dc brake with an integral rectifier, said to provide faster action than traditional spring-set brakes. Brake coil is connected in the motor conduit box, so it may be separately connected if the motor is used with an inverter. Heat dissipation is aided by cast aluminum frame. Enclosures range in size from NEMA 56C through 145TC.
