The FAE electromagnetic brake is a positive brake, actuated by current. By establishing a DC voltage in the coil, a magnetic field is generated, so that the stator with the friction-lining brake attracts the armature.
When no current is supplied, the membrane-spring retracts the armature, thereby releasing the brake and allowing the shaft to turn freely.
The FAE electromagnetic brake is characterized by having 3 different types of construction:
- Construction 1.1: It is the basic brake unit made up of the inducer and the armature, with the riveted spring-membrane to be mounted directly on the pulley or pinion.
- Construction 1.2 and 1.3: It is made up of the inductor, the armature and the aluminum bushing to be mounted on the axis where the braking action is carried out.
