The spring-applied, pneumatically released brake calliper from the R&H 200 series is suitable for use as a holding or stopping brake. A pneumatic actuating pressure of 5 bar is required to open the brake. A mechanical, manual release option is integrated into the brake as standard. Braking force depending on the thruster size per calliper: 3,000 to 8,000 N. The brake's finish makes it corrosion resistant, especially for outdoor applications or harsh environmental conditions. This corrosion protection is also possible for other brake types.
These systems have a wide range of use as holding brakes and emergency brakes that are locked by the spring when in a passive state. The release of the brake occurs hydraulically, pneumatically, or electrically. Examples of application are safety brakes in heavy industry, conveyor systems, all types of hoisting, and obviously in general mechanical engineering.
