High-Capacity Magnetic Particle Brakes & Clutches

Magnetic particle brakes and clutches handle up to 300 lb-ft torque, making them ideal for payout and rewind tension control, load simulation (for testing motors and actuators), torque limiting, and soft starts and stops.

High-Capacity Magnetic Particle Brakes & Clutches

Slip torque is precise, smooth, and silent. Torque is proportional to dc input current and is independent of slip rpm. A threaded port accepts compressed air to boost heat dissipation.
