Force Control introduced its Posidyne® X Class clutch brakes featuring oil shear technology that delivers rapid and precise stopping, starting, reversing, speed change and positioning while eliminating maintenance and adjustment.
These clutch brakes are ideal for applications with frequent start/stop cycles, allowing higher cycle rates (as high as 300 cycles per minute), and long service life (20 to 40 million cycles).
The Posidyne® X Class has an innovative Split Clamped Quill feature that reduces shaft and key/keyway damage to the motor shaft that can occur with conventional clutch/brakes. The split quill collar tightens the quill 360 degrees around the shaft and key for a stronger connection.
Options such as foot mounting kits, manifold mounted valves and optical encoders with closed loop positioning controls are available. The totally enclosed construction is impervious to dust, dirt, chips, etc. With the washdown or marine duty option they are resistant to chemicals, coolants, caustic wash down, weather, and more, making them well suited for hostile environments. The addition of an explosion proof actuation valve allows for use in hazardous environments.
