Motor Brakes > NEMA Frame
NEMA C-face brakes are designed to allow for direct mounting with coupled equipment. They are commonly used on pump, oil burners and gear reducers.
Motor Brakes > Servo
A servomotor brake offers a compact spring set, power-off brake, designed to hold the driven load or to provide dynamic braking. Features include low backlash, class H insulation, corrosion-resistant finishes, low inertia rotating parts, and a splined hub for quiet, dependable operation.
Motor Brakes > Small Gear
Gear motor brakes are power off style brakes designed to stop or hold a load that is coupled to the armature hub assembly. In the event of power failure, the brake would engage. They are most commonly used in commercial duty for small gear motors.
Motor Brakes > Metric Mount
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is the world’s leading organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic, and related technologies.
Motor Brakes > Hazardous Location
Stearns manufactures a complete line of disc brakes designed from the hazardous locations defined in the National Electric Code (NEC). They provide protection from explosive gases or ignitable dusts in rigorous industrial environments.
