Rotating shaft brakes provide the ability to stop a rotating shaft in a space craft, vehicle or on industrial equipment. Valcor’s Pulse Operated Bi-Stable Brakes do not require power to maintain its on or off position. A 100 mS pulse switches the brake or off. This enables substantial power savings over conventional spring-operated brakes that require power to hold the brake on or off. The field coils do not generate heat, which is important when the BSB is located in an enclosed unventilated cabinet. Valcor offers custom designed solutions for any bi-stable brake application.
