The brake shoe is designed to stop and hold mechanisms shafts (mainly handling machines) in a braked state with non-operating drive. The brakes are installed in a vertical position (horizontal position of the brake pulley axis and a base for mounting the brakes) on the mechanisms operating in fire risk environment. When installed on the mechanisms working outdoors, the brakes must be protected by a casing from falling rain and the action of solar radiation.
The brakes are installed electromagnets such as MO (AC). The coils of the electromagnets are designed for voltages: 220, 380, 550 VAC. The electromagnets are designed for intermittent mode, allow up to 300 cycles per hour.
