How to install SB Series power-off brakes

Thomson Industries has released an educational video for design engineers, illustrating how to properly install its SB Series power-off brake. Thomson's SB Series is designed as a servo brake with low backlash splines for high-performance applications such as robotics, medical equipment and packaging.

SB power-off brakes are typically mounted on the back end of a motor that requires the stopping and/or holding of a load in the absence of power. The video describes the installation of these brakes in simple and clear steps.

Thomson's SB Series includes a spline drive, which is constructed to withstand high-impact stresses and minimise system backlash. The spring-set, electromagnetic power-off brakes provide a safe and efficient way of stopping or holding load in the absence of power. Low-inertia, rotating components enable higher acceleration rates for design engineers to consider using for their specified application.

Thomson strives to continually innovate in linear motion and share their application engineering and technical expertise. To that end, Thomson has authored a wide range of educational videos, webinars and technical white papers available now at www.thomsonlinear.com to inform and guide design engineers, explain technology alternatives and simplify the linear motion component selection process.

Watch the video at www.thomsonlinear.com/techtips or via YouTube. For more information about Thomson's range of SB Series spring-set brakes, please visit www.thomsonlinear.com/cb.
