Controlling the rotary direction of a motor typically requires stopping the motor and changing the voltage polarity before restarting it. Another approach is to use a mechanical transmission to accomplish this task. Each method incurs substantial response time. Valcor’s unique Reversing Drives are self contained electromechanical systems that incorporate electromagnetic brakes and clutches to instantaneously start, stop and reverse the direction of an integral output shaft. The drive motor shaft’s direction and speed remain constant and is not subjected to mechanical shock during changes in output shaft rotation.
Reversing Drives applications include:
