The braking element is designed to lock and hold the shaft in position without any displacement upon engagement or reversing of the load. Features include a dynamic torque of 5300 in-lbs. (600 Nm) and an engagement response time of 85 ms. It also has horizontal or vertical mounting and flange mounts to the machine frame. It also mounts to a bearing supported shaft.
