mechanical torque limiter
EIDE "INDUSTRIAL CLUTCHES & BRAKES"
Min.: 10 Nm (7.38 ft.lb)
Max.: 600 Nm (442.54 ft.lb)
LPB torque limiters are mechanisms designed to absorb excess loads in any kind of machine. They are not friction limiters, and their main features are:
When the controlled torque is exceeded, one of their parts moves, next to which a micro breaker can be installed, able to stop the entire transmission by means of an electric signal when it detects movement.
Once the problem has been detected and solved, when the movement starts, the limiter makes it possible to recover the mechanical synchronism for which it is build. Normally, it is 360º; other configurations are manufactured upon order.
