What is the FAE/M electromagnetic brake?


The FAE/M electromagnetic brake is a safety and braking device used in various industrial applications. These brakes are particularly suitable when a safe stop of moving masses or loads is required. In this article, we will explore in detail how these brakes work and the different constructions available.

Operation of the FAE/M electromagnetic brake

The FAE/M electromagnetic brake is what is known as a negative brake, which means that it acts through the action of springs in the absence of electric current. When there is no voltage applied to the brake coil, the springs exert pressure on the element to be braked, keeping it in motion.

When a DC voltage is applied to the coil, a magnetic field is generated which attracts the brake armature. This action counteracts the force of the springs, releasing the pressure on the braking element and allowing a safe and controlled stop.

Available constructions

The FAE/M electromagnetic brake is available in three different construction variants to suit various requirements:

  • Construction 1.1: This is the basic brake unit, consisting of the armature, springs and armature with friction material. It is ideal for applications requiring direct braking without the need for additional mounting.
  • Construction 1.2 and 1.3: These constructions include the armature, the springs, the armature with the friction material, and a steel bushing that allows the brake to be mounted on the shaft where the braking action will be performed. This configuration is useful when a more robust and secure installation is required.

It is essential to note that the application to be braked or the axle on which the brake is mounted must be able to withstand the force exerted by the springs to ensure safe and efficient operation.

Highlights of the FAE/M electromagnetic brake


  • Single plane monodisc: The FAE/M brake uses a single-plane single disc, which simplifies its design and makes it highly efficient in its braking function.
  • Standard Voltage 24 V.d.c.: This brake operates on a standardised voltage of 24 volts direct current (VDC), which makes it easy to integrate into common systems and applications.
  • Braking on application: The FAE/M electromagnetic brake is characterised by braking directly on the application, which ensures precise and safe control when stopping moving masses.


The FAE/M electromagnetic brake can be used for different types of machinery, such as:
