Brake motors feature fail-safe positive, stop and hold design. These single phase motors are tightly enclosed to prevent the free exchange of air, but are not airtight. Suitable for use where exposed to dirt or dampness, but not very moist or hazardous (explosive) locations. Brakes are spring set. Load is stopped automatically when power is turned off. Brake motors feature a power off manual release for convenience, and for use in case of a power failure. The manual release resets automatically. The standard brake is manufactured by Stearns. The brake coil leads are brought into the conduit box of the motor for easy connection and may be connected to operate when power to the motor is shut off, or to be actuated independent of power to the motor. Single phase brake coils are 115/230 VAC, 60 Hz.
