Electromagnetic clutch/brake

Article-Electromagnetic clutch/brake

The Smooth-Start™ UniModule electromagnetic clutch/brake provides consistent, smooth starting and stopping performance throughout its entire torque range, the co. reports. Suitable for conveyor lines, including unit-handling conveyors, where starting and stopping at full torque can cause conveyed items to slide or tip, the Smooth-Start unit enables operators to tailor clutch/brake torque to their application's specific starting and stopping requirements. Factory-assembled, the unit is NEMA C-face-compatible and automatically adjusts for wear. It can be paired with the co.'s CBC-300 clutch/brake control, which features two independently adjustable channels, allowing the clutch and brake torque levels to be set independently.
