Advantages of linear eddy-current brakes

Advantages of linear eddy-current brakes
(Linear magnetic brakes)

  • non-contact braking – no friction
  • not dependent on weather or environmental conditions
  • wear-free – and thus maintenance-free as well
  • absolute 100% reliability
  • jerkless
  • the higher the speed, the higher the braking force
  • works without control and power supply
  • independent of the movement direction
  • Therefore, eddy-current brakes are ideally suited as
    • safety brake in vehicles
    • emergency brake in lifts etc.
    • for transportation and materials handling
    • for special purpose machines
    • for mine railways
