Brake units

DC-injection electronic brake units: the simplest solution to brake an AC motor with no stress.

The brake control unit in the MFC and MFD series has been designed to statically achieve fast braking of a standard three-phase squirrel cage or wound-rotor asynchronous motor by injecting electronically controlled current into the motor windings after the main contactor has been opened.

Operational advantages:

  • reduction of downtimes to increase machine safety
  • easy installation and calibration by microprocessor control
  • completely solid state, maintenance free
  • settable braking torque for different modes of operation with front trimmer adjustment to achieve the stop as required
  • smooth braking without mechanical stress on transmission
  • automatic stop of the braking system when the motor is stopped
