Brakes and Brake Control Systems

  • On request, SEW-EURODRIVE motors and gearmotors are supplied with an integrated mechanical brake. The brake is a DC-operated electromagnetic disk brake that is released electrically and applied using spring force. The brake is applied in case of a power failure. It meets the basic safety requirements.
  • The brake can also be released mechanically if equipped with manual brake release. Two options are available for manual brake release:
    • With automatic manual brake release (..HR); a hand lever is supplied.
    • With lock-type manual brake release (..HF), a setscrew is supplied.
  • The brake is controlled by a brake controller that is either installed in the motor wiring space or in the control cabinet.
  • A main advantage of brakes from SEW-EURODRIVE is their very short design. The integrated construction of the brakemotor permits particularly compact and sturdy solutions.
  • Technical data of DR motor brakes
  • The following table shows the technical data of the brakes. The type and number of brake springs determines the level of the braking torque. Maximum braking torque MB max is installed as standard, unless specified otherwise in the order. Other brake spring combinations can result in reduced braking torque values MB red.

  • Technical data of brake control systems for DR motors
  • Various brake controllers are available for controlling disk brakes with a DC coil, depending on the requirements and the operating conditions. All brake control systems are fitted as standard with varistors to protect against overvoltage.
  • The brake control systems are either installed directly on the motor in the wiring space or in the control cabinet. For motors of thermal class 180 (H) and explosion-proof motors, the control system must be installed in the control cabinet.
  • Brake control system in the wiring space
  • The supply voltage for brakes with an AC connection is either supplied separately or taken from the supply system of the motor in the wiring space. Only motors with a fixed speed can be supplied from the motor supply voltage. With pole-changing motors and for operation with a frequency inverter, the supply voltage for the brake must be supplied separately.
  • Furthermore, bear in mind that the brake response is delayed by the residual voltage of the motor if the brake is powered by the motor supply voltage. The brake application time t2I specified in the technical data for cut-off in the AC circuit applies to a separate supply only.
  • The following table lists the technical data of brake control systems for installation in the motor wiring space and the assignments with regard to motor size and connection technology. The different housings have different colors (= color code) to make them easier to distinguish.
