Western Electric Brake Motor
1AB series-enclosed construction externally ventilated – sizes 63-160
The brake-motors of the 1AB series are motors resulting from coupling an asynchronous three-phase motor and A.M electromagnetic D.C brake unit.
Due to their reliability and operating safety, as well as their quick braking time (connection & disconnection time = 5-80 milliseconds) they are suitable for a great variety of applications such as:
-Braking of loads or torques on driving shaft
-Braking of rotating masses to reduce any lost-time
-Braking operations to increase the set-up precision
-Braking of machine parts, according to safety rules
