Hysteresis Brake  
Basic Design and Operation Basic Construction
Examples of installation & Application

Chain Tail hysteresis clutch and brake utilize the principles of hysteresis to bring accurate and smooth torque. The torque is produced through a magnetic air gap without magnetic particles or friction components. This method offers superior operation characteristics, such as long life, smooth torque, high torque repeatability and low maintenance cost. Hysteresis clutch and brake are the preferred choices for precise tension control.
 
 Special features:
 
Free mounting direction
  Easy installation, can be mounted horizontally or vertically.
   

Available in high speed
  Torque is produced by a non-contact structure, which allows brake working at high speed.
   

Easy, accurate torque control
  Accurate ratio of torque to current. Torque can be adjusted.
   

High torque repeatability
  Torque is produced by electric magnetism; therefore, the repeatability on ratio of torque to current is very high.
   

Smooth operation
  The slipping torque is smooth when brake is working.
   

Long life
  No mechanical friction, or wear components exist.
