General Purpose C-Face Motor Brakes

Use Cases for a General Purpose C-Face Motor Brake

General purpose C-Face motor brakes are manufactured in line with the American mechanical standards set by National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and are designed to support physical stress implicated by mechanical loads and hard-to-start, high-inertia loads. Typical applications for general purpose motor brakes typically include: 

How does an industrial C-Face brake work? 

Stearns general purpose C-Face brakes use both rotating and stationary friction discs to stop and hold motor shafts and gearboxes for efficient spring-set, fail-safe braking.They’re built specifically to mount on NEMA C-Face electric motors in industrial applications without any special alignment procedures.
