Brake designed for general industrial application units feature zero backlash, armature hub, and field assemblies that can accommodate bearings for additional shaft support.
AMB-E version now available - Newer E version is lower in cost, lighter in weight, is RoHS compliant and has a reduced wattage so energy consumption is lower, but still has equivalent performance to the AMC brakes.
Easy Mounting And Maintenance; The brake flange mounts to the customer's machine via the four mounting holes. The bore of the brake can also be used to house a bearing which can reduce the overall length of the machine and cost because the brake body acts as as bearing housing.
Zero Backlash; By mounting the armature to the hub via leaf springs, backlash is minimized and armature rattle is eliminated.
Controllable Response Time; Variations in acceleration or deceleration times and slip torque can be achieved by controlling the applied current.
Fast Response; Elimination of splines provides faster response and high performance by overcoming friction in the armature and hub.
High Heat Dissipation; The AM series units perform relentlessly year after year, even in heavy duty applications, due to their excellent heat dissipation.
