DEX Series brakes have been made with capsule module and IP65 housing protection in order to suitable for ZONE 1 and ZONE 21 hazardous environments. Its are an explosionproof and non-flammable braking systems that can be easily installed with 4 bolts around the motor or gearbox in compliance with IEC flange and shaft standards, which is activated by controlled or uncontrolled power cuts with Spring Applied Brake (YBF) it contains within the capsule module. It is used to keep the moving shafts in the desired position and stop the inertia of rotation for safe operation.
The system, which is in brake state when there is no electrical energy, with the magnetic field created by the energy coming on the coil, defeats the compression springs installed in the body and pulls the pressure flange to the body. The lining, which is freed with this gap, releases the spindle to which it is connected with the gear and wedge in its core. When it is desired to switch to the braking position, the electrical energy is cut off and the effect of the magnetic field on the stator is removed. In this way, the installed springs move the pressure flange, the lining is compressed between the mounting flange and the pressure flange, and braking is made.
