Clutches in this category are utilized in applications involving a driving shaft which, when rotating, is able to engage or disengage a secondary shaft driven either by gears or a belt-and-pulley combination. Industrial brakes are intended for applications in which the primary mover is to be held at its stop position. A power-on brake will decelerate and provide inertia when power is supplied, requiring that power be transferred from motor to brake. A power-off brake is energized along with the motor itself, decelerating and retaining inertia when the power is shut off. The latter is geared to applications where power consumption and safety are of major concern.
PIC Design's clutches and brakes can perform any of the following functions for a variety of applications similar to the ones listed below:
