The integrated hydraulic brake is comprised of a pneumatic cylinder that acts as an actuator and an oleo-dynamic circuit that acts as a brake.
The dimensions of the pneumatic cylinder comply with ISO 15552.
The hydraulic circuit is comprised of a brake fluid tank and one or two flow regulation pins. It can mount one or more (slow-fast) SKIP or STOP valves that are normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC), for the piston rod extension and retraction.
The basic feature of this device is that the driving force and the braking force are coaxial, so they do not generate undesired bending moments on the piston rod and the external structures connected to it. Due to its conception, this brake is particularly compact and has reduced dimensions compared to BRK external hydraulic brakes.
After a certain operating time, the brake fluid tank must be topped up with oil. This needs doing when the oil level reaches the minimum mark on the rod. With the piston rod right out, the minimum level mark must not project less than 8-10 mm from the cap.
Always use DEXRON ATF hydraulic oil or another compatible product. During the first operating cycles, excess oil is expelled through a hole in the tank.
