Solcon Solbrake – DC Injection Brakes


The Solcon Solbrake Electronic Brake provides fast, smooth, frictionless braking of standard motors by injecting controlled DC current into the motor windings after the line contactor has opened. This DC current induces a stationary magnetic field which exerts a braking torque on the rotor.


  • Range 8-820A, 208-690V
  • Reduces stopping time of high inertia loads
  • Adjustable braking time
  • Auto stop – DC Injection stops when the motor stops
  • DIN rail mounting
  • Easy to install and simple to operate

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.

Solutions to exceed expectations

At CSE Uniserve we originally specialised in HV electric motors and have developed our knowledge and understanding of motor-related electrical equipment and control to complement our expertise in this field. Delivering solutions to motor control is something that we are passionate about and our engineers and technicians have over 30 years experience in this regard, which ensures that whatever the needs of our customers are, we have the capabilities to meet and exceed them.

    • 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.
