Overview | Brakes
Brushless motors series BG and brush-type DC motors series GR/G can be fitted with brakes. As standard, power-off brakes are employed, i.e. the brake operates when no voltage is applied and releases when current flows. Power-on brakes are available on request. IP 54 covers are available for all brakes. Combinations of incremental encoders and brakes are possible. Depending on the motor-brake combination, classes of protection up to IP 65 are possible. To protect the DC contacts in your control system against arcing, we recommend the use of a freewheeling diode.
