The Solcon Solbrake is an ideal replacement for the old electrical braking systems including Reversing (which may result in reversing the motor rotation) or Regenerative braking (which requires resistors to absorb the energy). The Solbrake can be used with auxiliary mechanical brakes, use the Solbrake to gently bring the motor speed to zero before operating a mechanical brake as the holding brake.
What DC Injection Brakes Do
DC injection braking applies direct current (DC) to the stationary windings of an AC motor after the AC voltage has been removed. Where AC motors are concerned it has proven itself as an effective method braking that is both quick and smooth regardless of the load type, that is high-inertia or high-speed.
The Solcon Solbrake Electronic Brake provides frictionless braking by injecting controlled DC into the motor windings of standard motors after the line contactor has opened. The braking time is adjustable to cater to the type of load and it is both easy to install and simple to operate.
Where old electrical braking systems need to be replaced this is an ideal choice. It can be used with auxiliary mechanical brakes and with no moving parts, maintenance is kept to a minimum, which makes for a much more efficient, long-lasting results.
Are you looking for electronic brake equipment?
One of the most important things to consider when creating and maintaining a motor is how best to ensure that the motor can be swiftly, efficiently and safely brought to a halt when necessary. And of course, in order for this to happen, you require effective motor braking. There are a variety of different options available when it comes to deciding which kind of brake is right for you, but DC injection brakes such as those that you’ll find here at CSE Universe are always an excellent and versatile choice.
A DC electronic brake works by applying a direct current to the windings of a motor after the voltage has been stopped, significantly reducing the amount of time the motor continues coasting after being switched off. Serving as a frictionless, safe and consistent means of bringing any standard motor to a stop for any other reason, the Solcon Solbrake electronic brake has proven to be a highly popular choice with many of our clients across a huge range of industries.
