Slim safety brake launched
Published: 31 July 2019 - Rachael Morling
New from ABSSAC, the BXR-LE type super slim safety brake is half the thickness, but with the same outer diameter, as its big brother, the BXW series. This features holding and braking torque just below the existing models, with the overall thickness as little as 14mm (model 035).
The brake, the company explains, is operated by the compressive force delivered from several built-in springs, which are activated in the event of a power failure or if the power is cut off due to an emergency.
Suitable applications are within servo motors and robotics.
