The active floating caliper brake EMB-STOP S-A-xx-F is an electrical brake system for the low and average performance range.
EMB-STOP S-A-xx-F is a solid disk brake mainly used as a holding brake and parking brake. The active electrically applied shaft brake is in a position to keep the plant without energy with numerous applications. Typical applications are high-speed generator shafts of smaller to medium-size wind turbines, low performance propeller shafts and plants that need to be locked at standstill.
The active floating caliper brake EMB-STOP S-A-xx-F is self-locking which means that the brake remains in the current condition, i. e. either released or applied even if the supply voltage fails.
