A power motor brake (commonly known as an electric brake) is a safety feature incorporated into many modern power tools, such as circular saws, drills, and miter saws. Many manufacturers implement this feature into tools particularly with a spinning blade or cutter.
Designed with Oil Shear Technology, the Posistop and MagnaShear Engine Brakes are dynamic stopping brakes made to mount on the back of a brakeless brake motor. They can survive the harsh environments of mining, manufacturing, materials handling as well as packaging and food digesting with minimal maintenance and no adjustment-ever. The totally enclosed durable housings keep dirt and moisture out while reducing sound and extracting heat.
The motor mounted brakes can be furnished 3 ways: (1) installed on a NEMA or IEC frame motor, (2) furnished as an assembled brake motor with motor and brake assembled, (3) or with a particular flange to mount to other flanges like a gear reducer.
