Electric Brake for Direct Drive Servo Motor Apps

BXR-LE electric spring applied brakes from Miki Pulley Industrial Brakes are ideal for small and precise servo motor configurations. Their compact and lightweight design improves servo drive performance and efficiency. With accompanying voltage controller, the brake’s power consumption is stepped down to 7 Vdc after a split second of 24 Vdc to actuate the brake. Compared to most other electric brakes, the BXR-LE provides one-third the power consumption and heat generation in one-half the overall size thickness. Specifications are:

  • Maximum RPM: 6,000
  • Static friction torque range: 0.044 ft.lb. to 2.36 ft.lb. (0.06Nm to 3.20 Nm)
  • Ambient operating temperature 14° to 104°F (-10° to 40°C)

Additional applications for the BXR-LE brakes include end effectors, ball screw actuators, XYZ positioning tables. And 3D printers.
