Warner Electric offers a wide variety of clutch/brake controls which perform a broad array of functions ranging from basic starting and stopping to rapid cycling and high accuracy indexing our clutch/brake controls.
Many applications are controlled by energizing the clutches and brakes with their rated D.C. voltages. Warner Electric controls are available with various mounting, input voltage and switching options.
The torque transmitted by a clutch or brake is proportional to the coil current. Warner Electric offers several products that provide torque control for smooth and repeatable starts and stops.
Clutch Brake Positioning Controls.
Warner Electric offers a control that allows for adjustment of the acceleration and deceleration time ramps to achieve a repeatable soft start or stop while still allowing for full torque.
The clutch/brake speed of response can be increased for improved accuracy and performance through overexcitation, which is the application of a short high voltage pulse to provide nearly instantaneous torque.
Products range from simple manually adjustable models through sophisticated closed loop dancer controls and load cell systems.
