Dynamic Brakes for AC Motors 4-315KW, 220-690V

The SOLBRAKE is the ultimate replacement for the old electrical braking systems such as Reversing (which may result in reversing the motor rotation) or Regenerative braking (which requires resistors to absorb the energy).

The SOLBRAKE will help to bring your equipment inline with the safety requirements of PUWER 98.

Solid State Motor Brakes provide fast, smooth, frictionless braking of squirrel cage motors by injecting controlled DC current into the motor windings, after mains contactor has opened. This induces a stationary magnetic field which exerts a braking torque on the rotor.

The SOLBRAKE can be used with mechanical brakes to softly bring the motor speed to zero before operating a mechanical brake. .
