Shaft Mounted Clutches/Power-On Brakes
Type SLB and SOB
Shaft-mounted Clutch/Power-On Brake package used to couple two parallel or in line shafts. The Clutch/Brake package combines the features of the model SL or SO with an FB into one unit for easy installation.
The clutch armature hub accommodates a pulley/gear/sprocket/etc. to transmit torque to the second shaft. The brake is used to stop or hold the load. The Clutch/Brake package is shaft mounted and retained by a loose-fitting pin or bracket through the anti-rotation tab.
Manual Release, Spring Applied Brakes
A type FSBR015 spring applied brake with a manual release lever. Incorporates a lever which is rotated to mechanically engage the clapper plate.
The clapper plate acts against the compression springs and allows the armature disc to spin freely. The brake is now free of torque.
An optional microswitch is activated on the field assembly to disconnect power to your system in case of an accidental start-up with the brake manually released.
