Bistable Brakes - Low Energy Solution
As already described for the design of clutches, KEB bi-stable brakes, also called flip-flop brakes, also offer the capability of maintaining switching states - open and closed - without additional energy input.
Bi-stable brakes make sense in particular when stopping for a long time in one position is necessary, as in the use for doors and hatch systems, for example.
|Torque range||20 … 60 Nm|
|Diameter||100 … 160 mm|
|Operating voltages||12 … 48 V DC|
KEB Flip-flop brakes offer:
- Zero energy consumption, except on switching pulse
- Easy system integration
- Torsional backlash-free effect
- Two stable end positions
- Long service life
