MACH III Clutch announced expansion of standard miniature line of brakes, clutches and torque limiters with new Miniature NEMA Spring Engaged Brakes Series. These brakes, which include the D2C2R-42H and D2C2R-48H models, are ideal for tight spaces, smaller shafts or applications with light torque requirements.
The new miniature brakes include a NEMA frame and enclosed, aluminum housings. In terms of their operation, spring pressure compresses the drive and friction discs, producing a fixed amount of torque. The brake is then released when sufficient air pressure energizes it.
Designed for horizontal mounting configurations, the D2C2R-42H and D2C2R-48H brakes mount between a C-face motor and gear reducer in holding applications. They also function as a failsafe in non-cycling applications.
Notable specifications include:
- NEMA frame size: 42C (D2C2R-42H) and 48C (D2C2R-48H)
- Dynamic torque: 73 lb-in
- Minimum disengagement pressure: 60 psi
- Maximum operating pressure: 80 psi
- Maximum rotations per minute: 1,750 rpm
- Input bore/output shaft: 0.375 in (D2C2R-42H) and 0.500 in (D2C2R-48H)
- Air volume (new): 0.02 cubic-in
- Vertical mounting available
The latest miniature spring engaged brakes join a comprehensive lineup of miniature brakes, clutches and torque limiters. These standard devices are ideal for torque requirements less than 200 lb-in and shaft sizes between 0.3125 and 0.500 in. Clear anodized or stainless housing versions are also available.
