KENDRION (VILLINGEN) GMBH
The Classic Line includes DC spring-pressure single-disc and multi-disc brakes which, due to their robust design and the variable connection technology, meet the requirements of demanding applications. Electromagnetically-operated spring-applied brakes build up the braking torque when the current is switched off and the electromagnetic force is therefore neutralized.
The Compact Line includes spring-pressure single-disc brakes that can be mounted as complete units to the motor with very little assembly work. The compact design is of advantage when limited space complicates mounting. Electromagnetically-operated spring-applied brakes build up the braking torque when the current is switched off.
The Module Line includes spring pressure single-disc brake modules for direct current which can be mounted as additional modules to a fully assembled motor – preferably to end shield A. Therefore, the Module Line has an own bearing-mounted output shaft. The line is designed as a holding brake with emergency stop function. Electromagnetic spring pressure brakes build up the braking torque when the current is switched off. By means of the electromagnetic force or an additionally attached hand lifting the braking force can be neutralized during installation works.
The Elevation Line includes both DC spring-pressure single-disc brakes as well as spring-pressure double-disc brakes which comply with EN 81 (Safety Regulations Concerning the Design and Installation of Elevators). Integrated micro-switches allow for remote inquiry of the brake condition (armature position, wear, armature bearing). Owing to the patented safety concept, the otherwise mandatory testing of the dual-circuit braking system of the spring-pressure brake at the approval of the elevator system can be dropped. The brake can be used in places where short construction lengths with respective system components like motor, gear and brake must be realized. The Elevation Line is primarily used for elevators, but can be used wherever the brake must meet demanding safety requirements. Electromagnetic spring-pressure brakes build up the braking torque when the current is switched off.
The Active Brake Line includes DC single-disc brakes, in which the action of force of an electromagnetic field (electromagnetically closing) is used to generate the braking force. The Active Brake Line is characterized by a secure, residual moment-free lifting in any position, and by a backlash-free transfer of the braking torque. Throughout their complete service life, they require little or no maintenance.
The spring-applied single-disc brakes in the Servo Line series are designed to operate dry. They can be mounted to the A-face or B-face end shield inside the servo motor. The braking action generated by the compression springs is neutralized by applying the electromagnetic principle involving generation of a magnetic field. The brakes engage in unpowered condition and release when DC voltage is applied. The brakes are equipped with a flange and firmly fastened with screws. Thanks to a specially developed and patented manufacturing method, the rated air gap tolerance can be reduced to a few hundredths of a millimetre, providing enhanced power. Moreover, the brakes have a toothed hub/friction disc connection with minimal circumferential backlash. Standard version is suitable for flange mounting and face mounting.
The Active Clutch Line includes DC slip-ring-free single-disc clutches, in which the action of force of an electromagnetic field (electromagnetically closing) is used to transmit the torque. The clutches of the Active Clutch Line are characterized by a secure, residual moment-free lifting in any position and by a backlash-free transfer of the torque. Throughout their complete service life, they require little or no maintenance. Depending on the clutch version, higher switching capacities can be achieved.
Electromagnetic clutches and brakes by Kendrion (Aerzen) transmit the torque and brake torque through dry running friction material. With DC voltage applied, the torque is transmitted without backlash. Using the prestressed spring of the armature, a release, free of residual torque is ensured. These clutches and brakes can be installed in any mounting position and hardly need any maintenance. Kendrion (Aerzen) offers standard clutches from 0.3 to 3.6 Nm as well as customer- and application-specific solutions up to 5 Nm.
ESM for AC-brakes: The module consists of a time-controlled rectifier with integral electronic fast turn-off. During start-up, the ESM delivers bridge-rectified output voltage before changing over to half-wave rectification. The built-in voltage sensor ensures that the DC side output voltage is interrupted electronically when AC input voltage is removed. Thanks to its compact design, the ESM can be installed in very restricted space.
ESM for DC-brakes: The module keeps the voltage supplied to the electromagnetic device at a constant level over a wide input voltage and temperature range. Full operating voltage is applied to ensure fast switching when the load is switched on. The module then reduces the power supply to constant holding voltage. A 30% reduction provides power savings of 50%. The ESM is very compact thanks to the use of state-of-the-art microelectronic and power electronic components. Overexcitation time and holding voltage can be factory-programmed to customer demands.
The VARIO LINE includes DC spring-pressure single-disc brakes, which can be matched to the individual application due to a wide range of variants. Electromagnetically-operated spring-pressure brakes build up the braking torque when the current is switched off. By means of the electromagnetic force or an additionally mounted hand lifting device, the braking effect can be neutralized. Fitting dimensions and the grading of the type series of the VARIO LINE are matched to IEC motors.
