An electric motor brake (commonly brake motor referred to as a power brake) is a safety feature incorporated into many modern power tools, such as circular saws, drills, and miter saws. Many producers implement this feature into equipment specifically with a spinning blade or cutter.
Designed with Oil Shear Technology, the Posistop and MagnaShear Motor Brakes are dynamic stopping brakes made to mount on the trunk of a brakeless brake electric motor. They can survive the harsh conditions of mining, manufacturing, materials handling in addition to packaging and food processing with minimal maintenance and no adjustment-ever. The totally enclosed tough housings keep dirt and moisture out while reducing sound and extracting heat.
The motor installed brakes can be furnished three ways: (1) installed on a NEMA or IEC frame engine, (2) furnished as an assembled brake electric motor with motor and brake assembled, (3) or with a special flange to mount to other flanges like a gear reducer.
