MagnaShear Electric Release Spring Set Assembled Brake Motors

Designed for Severe Duty High Cycle Applications
Dynamic Stopping Brakes – Not Just Holding Brakes

Designed with Oil Shear Technology the MagnaShear Assembled Brake Motors consist of a motor with a MagnaShear brake installed. They can survive the harsh environments of mining, manufacturing, material handling as well as packaging and food processing with minimal maintenance and no adjustment. The motors are of high quality from respected motor manufacturers and can be furnished with various options such as hazardous duty, washdown, low temperature, inverter duty, fan cooling, blowers thermistors, heaters, cast iron, aluminum, or stainless steel housings, various voltages, and many more. The totally enclosed rugged brake housings keep dirt and moisture out while reducing noise and extracting heat.

Assembled Brake Motors are available for applications of 1 HP to 200 HP. And frame sizes up to 455T. “Oil Shear Technology” perfected over 40 years by Force Control Industries provides the brake with up to 10 times the normal life of dry friction units with minimal maintenance and “No Adjustment – Ever”.

Options and Accessories

Manual Release – Designed to allow manual release of the brake when power is off. This allows movement of the machine for maintenance purposes while the power is locked out. The MSB4 and MSB6 have two levers on either side. Both must be turned to fully release the brake. The larger brakes have one large handle on the back.

Manual Release Indicator – indicates that the brake has been manually released

Wear Indicator Sensor – Indicates when the brake has reached maximum friction disc wear

Stub shaft – shaft extended out the back of the brake for  encoder mounting

Splined Quill – splined quill for connecting to special splined motor or reducer shaft.

Voltage Step down Transformers – required if brake control power is not 115 VAC. Many voltages can be used such as 240, 480, 390, 575, and DC.

Marine Duty – Similar to washdown this option is for use on boats, barges offshore rigs, or waterfront loading facilities and ports exposed to fresh or salt water.

All of the items  included in the washdown option are included as well as bio degradable fluid.

Washdown - All units an be furnished with food grade fluid USDA-H2 for applications where standard fluid may be objectionable. This could be in food processing, or around water.
