Chain Tail hysteresis clutch and brake utilize the principles of hysteresis to bring accurate and smooth torque. The torque is produced through a magnetic air gap without magnetic particles or friction components. This method offers superior operation characteristics, such as long life, smooth torque, high torque repeatability and low maintenance cost. Hysteresis clutch and brake are the preferred choices for precise tension control.


icon-02.gifSpecial features:


item-01.gifFree mounting direction

     Easy installation, can be mounted horizontally or vertically.


item-02.gifAvailable in high speed

     Torque is produced by a non-contact structure, which allows brake working at high speed.

item-03.gifEasy, accurate torque control

     Accurate ratio of torque to current. Torque can be adjusted.

item-04.gifHigh torque repeatability

     Torque is produced by electric magnetism; therefore, the repeatability on ratio of torque to current is very high.

item-05.gifSmooth operation

     The slipping torque is smooth when brake is working.

item-06.gifLong life

     No mechanical friction, or wear components exist.
