High-Torque Electric Brake suits heavy industry equipment.

October 13, 2010

Fitting into drive system of any heavy industry equipment, Series 7EC Electric Caliper brake features torque capacity of 500-5,000 lb-ft and speed up to 10,000 sfpm. Spring-set/electrically-released brake is used for dynamic stopping, E-stop, and/or holding-only applications, and can be mounted directly to drive shaft, bolted to coupling hub, or directly to large motors. Electrical operation eliminates need for hydraulic or pneumatic components or systems. Read More

Caliper Disc Brake has electric, spring applied design.

February 17, 2010

Measuring 7 x 5 x 6 in., EMB-300CP employs series of springs that apply force to friction disc and are released when voltage/current is applied. Brake can produce 710 lb axial force and is made to operate with disc thickness of 12.5 mm. Requiring 2-wire hook up, product has normal operating voltage of 45 V but supports excitation to 90 V for accelerated response. For increased torque, modular design enables multiple brakes to be added to single disc. Read More

Brake Management System targets agricultural machines.

August 5, 2009

Based on electrically variable pumps, zero displacement motors, and intelligent control electronics, Hydrostatic Brake Management System prevents diesel engine from overspeeding. Braking algorithm, which is stored in BODAS controller, moves pump back instantly when pressure is applied to brake pedal, reducing geometric displacement of pump accordingly. Pressure-relief valves fitted to all hydrostatic travel drives allow system to achieve braking effect greater than drag torque of engine. Read More

ESC System features 6-piston pump configuration.

August 12, 2008

TRW solution is modular multi-piston pump based electronic stability control (ESC) that delivers high pressure build rate. With ability to quickly build brake pressure independent of vacuum boost from the engine, it allows for rapid braking in cold start, low-temperature, and high-altitude scenarios, and is suited for advanced systems such as Automatic Emergency Braking when full stopping force is applied independent of the driver.

Electronic Braking System lends to vehicle stability.

September 24, 2007

Modular, hydraulically closed ESC-R system promotes vehicle stability and fuel efficiency through compatibility with regenerative braking systems within hybrid vehicles. It is based on Standard Electronic Stability Control system with conventional booster and master cylinder, vacuum pump (if required), and brake volume displacement simulator. While causing no change in pedal feel, system configuration provides blend of regenerative/hydraulic brake output based on driver demand. Read More

FRA approves waiver for braking technology.

April 13, 2007

Resulting from waiver approved by Federal Railroad Administration, two railroads will equip and operate trains with Electronically Controlled Pneumatic brake technology, which maximizes train control, minimizes derailments, and shortens stopping distances. Under waiver, trains equipped with ECP brakes will be able to safely travel up to 3,500 miles without stopping to undergo routine brake inspections. Waiver permits FRA to gather extensive data for developing proposed rulemaking. Read More

Electronic Motor Brake rapidly stops AC induction motors.

November 20, 2003

Solid-state DYNA-STOP II DC injection motor brake stops motors from spinning by employing zero speed function, which monitors motor rotation and applies DC current until motor has stopped, regardless of load. Brake has no mechanical shafts to connect and installs on 2-40 hp motors by connecting 7 wires. Standard features include soft starting of DC to protect SCR life, motor starter interlock, and frictionless operation. Read More

Electronic Braking System suits industrial applications.

June 12, 2003

Braketronic® Controller utilizes solid-state drive technology to provide variable torque control to industrial shoe and disc brakes. Product enables single or multiple brakes to be proportionally controlled by foot pedal, master switch, or radio as well as selectively by aforementioned means. Controller may also be configured to gradually apply brakes by pre-programmed ramping, initiated by single-step control devices or pendant stations. Read More
