Fail-safe brake

Published:  04 February, 2015

Mayr says its ROBA-stop-S is an electromagnetic fail-safe brake that has been developed specifically to operate in arduous, wet and corrosive environments. It is designed to hold a system in position when the drive has been switched off and in emergency situations such as E-stop or power failure, the brake can act dynamically to bring the load to rest.

The company says the brakes, which are maintenance free through the life of the rotor, feature a high quality primer coating on the exterior surface and corrosion resistant internal materials. They can be operated in either vertical or horizontal applications and are IP67 rated.
