Emerson Industrial introduces FFB brake motors

March 15, 2016 - Emerson Industrial introduces FFB brake motors that can be integrated in most fixed or variable speed applications quickly and easily.

Its modular encoder adaptation principle makes it a versatile motor, suitable for the simplest to the most demanding variable speed applications. The industrial control of its performance (running-in of all the friction parts as standard) and a wide range of braking function supervision accessories (opening, closing and wear sensor, etc.), significantly increase the safety of the transmission chain.

The multi-voltage, multi-frequency construction of the FFB brake motor, covering 80% of the world’s power supplies, makes it ideal for use in many countries. Just one product reference is all that is needed, in place of the previous four or five.

In order to achieve significant energy savings, FFB brake motors offer various different efficiency levels: non-IE, IE2 and IE3. Ideal for variable speed operation, they comply with requirements for improved energy efficiency in motorised industrial applications.

Main technical characteristics:
5 sizes

  • Frame sizes: 71 to 160
  • Braking torques: 4.5 to 200 N.m.
  • Multi-voltage 230/380/400/415 and 460 V
  • Multi-frequency 50 and 60 Hz
  • DC brake coil: 180 V or 20 V
  • Power supply built into the motor or separate via rectifier supplied in the motor terminal box
