Industries' hollow shaft brakes mount easily. Magnetic particle brakes are
ideal for payout (unwind) tension control, load simulation (for testing motors
and actuators), and soft stops. Slip torque is precise, smooth and silent. Torque
is proportional to dc input current and is
independent of slip RPM.
Hollow shaft brakes are available with torque
ranges from 0.3 - 15 lb-inch to 75 lb-ft. Hollow shaft clutches torque ranges:
0.4 - 14 lb-inch to 65 lb-ft.
