Original Press Release:

Warner Electric Clutch/Brake Modules Packaged for Performance

SOUTH BELOIT, IL - Warner Electric, an Altra Industrial Motion company, offers the advanced design of its Gen 2 electromagnetic packaged clutch/brake modules for flexibility and performance in motion control for material handling, food processing, packaging and other industrial applications.

Several performance enhancements over the original C-face design are achieved through
improvements in materials and manufacturing technologies. Internal component mounting and an external housing fin design increase heat dissipation and optimize stop/start frequencies, particularly in enclosed configurations. Also, improved input-to-output axis alignment reduces vibration, noise, and wear.

Integrated, custom mounting bolts make installation easier and allow the conduit box to be located directly on top of the unit for consistent orientation across the product line.

Optional cover kits readily convert vented units into fully enclosed modules that keep contaminants out and wear particles in for clean, quiet operation.
