Applications: Stopping coasting loads such as chippers, saws, cutting tools and conveyors. It can also be used to stop windmilling fans before starting.
Features: The Multipurpose Brake is a microprocessor based solid state brake designed to eliminate the problems common to traditional DC injection brakes. To eliminate blown fuses and welded contacts, the microprocessor senses when AC is no longer present before turning "on" the braking. A faster zero speed sensing circuit turns off the braking as soon as the motor stops to reduce motor heating.
