    Application / Type
  • Electric Brakes-Image
    Electric Brakes - (211 companies)
    ...that's used to generate electricity. A braking force is possible when electric current is passed through the electromagnets. Linear eddy current brakes consist of a magnetic yoke with electrical coil positioned along the rail. The coils are magnetized...
  • Hydraulic Brakes-Image
    Hydraulic Brakes - (146 companies)
    Methods. Most hydraulic brakes use non-contact, friction, toothed, wrap spring, or oil shear engagement techniques. With non-contact products, braking action is achieved via magnetic fields or eddy currents. By contrast, friction brakes transmit power...
  • Pneumatic Brakes-Image
    Pneumatic Brakes - (120 companies)
    Cone brakes are not commonly used. Several engagement methods are available for pneumatic brakes, including: Noncontact --Braking action is achieved through a non-contact technology such as a magnetic field, eddy currents, etc. Friction --Friction...
  • Mechanical Brakes-Image
    Mechanical Brakes - (175 companies)
    ...surfaces that transmit power without slippage or heat generation. Teeth are engaged only when stopped or running at slow speeds ( <20 rpm). Non-contact brakes use a technology such as a magnetic field or eddy currents to provide the braking action...

    Mechanical Brake and Clutch Assemblies - (44 companies)
    ...through a non-contact technology such as a magnetic field, eddy currents, etc. Friction --Friction between contact surfaces transmits power. This is the most common type of brake. Toothed --Toothed contact surfaces transmit power without slipping or heat...

    Linear Position Sensors - (753 companies)
    ...constant of the medium between the sensor and the target (usually air). Eddy current sensors are noncontact sensors which contain two coils, one active coil that is influenced by the presence of a conducting target, and a second coil that completes...
  •  
    Linear Solenoids - (132 companies)
    ...laminations that allow the magnetic field to develop while minimizing eddy currents. Unlike other solenoids, which are designed for use with direct current (DC) power, laminated solenoids can use alternating current (AC) with a silicon bridge...
  •  
    Dynamometers - (88 companies)
    ...the resultant torque and power. Eddy current dynamometers provide restraining torque that increases with shaft speed. In a hydraulic, or water brake, dynamometer, braking drag is applied to the dynamometer rotor vanes via water circulating between the rotor...
  •  
    Eddy Current Linear Encoders - (24 companies)
    Eddy current linear encoders detect the distance from a target by using magnetic fields generated by a reference and sensing coils. High performance, noncontact, eddy current linear encoders measure the position and motion of conductive targets...
