Double C-face Coupler Brake

August 19, 2013

Force Control Industries C-face coupler brakeForce Control Industries, Inc. recently developed a double C-face coupler brake that mounts on the drive end of a standard C-Face motor, replacing the commonly used motor brakes mounted on the back of a special motor designed with a mounting flange and extended shaft on the fan end of the motor. Mounting the Force Control double C-Face brake between the reducer and C-Face motor allows a standard C-face motor to be used. Since many plants stock C-face motors for other applications, this eliminates the purchasing and stocking both of a brake motor and a standard C-face motor, simplifying inventory and reducing costs.
