Electromagnetically Released Brakes
Power off load holding brakes
ERD Series brakes are designed to safely keep the load in position in the event of a power or motor failure, whether intentional or accidental.
These brakes (ERD) are typically applied where dynamic stopping of the load is desired when the electrical power is either accidentally or intentionally removed. They may be applied in any dry environment where a dependable heavy duty braking action is required, with no residual torque in the disengaged position.
An optional manual release allows the operator to safely move the load even when no power is available.
Brakes are available in eight different sizes ranging from 3.3 inches to 9.9 inches in diameter with torque capacities from 4 to 220 lb.ft.
