New Product: Short-series brake motors

May 8, 2008
Short Series Brake Motors (SSB) feature an integral Dodge spring-set brake for a compact design.

The dc brake is magnetically released with a built-in single-phase rectifier. It also has a manual release lever. Brake leads are brought to the motor conduit box for connecting to the motor leads or a separate connection when used with an inverter.

Available for 230, 460, and 575-V operation in NEMA sizes 56C through 184C and in 0.5 through 5 hp, the brake motors are UL/CSA recognized and CE certified. The 56 to 140 frames have low-profile F3 top-mounted conduit boxes and are inverter ready. SSB brake motors can be universally mounted. The 143-145TY and 143-145TYC frame motors have a special base with 56, 143 and 145 slots used on OEM conveyors. Baldor short series brake motors feature a two-year warranty.
