Signals are effectively transmitted with the latest satellites when equipped with the newest Miki Pulley BXR-LE brakes. They effectively control satellite dish positioning using less power over long periods of operation.
The Miki Pulley brake opens and allows for free rotation when the satellite dish is panning and tilting and snaps closed when power is disengaged holding precise position. When the satellite dish is in position for long periods of time, the brake consumes no voltage. The brake’s internal compression springs hold the armature plate against the rotor disc, holding movement. When voltage is re-applied, the brake opens and allows for position control.
These Miki Pulley brakes also act as a safety device during dish movement. If an unexpected power interruption occurs, the brake will halt and hold movement to mitigate potential mechanical damage to the satellite system.
When compared to most other electric brakes, the revolutionary Miki Pulley brake design provides just one-third power consumption and heat generation in one-half the overall size thickness. Specifications are:
• Maximum RPM: 6000
• Static friction torque range: 0.044 to 2.36 ft.lb. (0.06 to 3.20 Nm)
• Ambient operating temperature 14 – 104°F (-10 to 40°C)
