New modular, IP67 rated brake offers optimum performance and longevity for marine, offshore and other demanding applications

Stromag, part of Altra Industrial Motion Corp, has launched a new, modular range of brakes designed for applications in challenging environments. The HPB (High Performance Brake) is an electromagnetically operated design that activates automatically in the event of a power failure to hold or stop loads. The new range is designed for working, holding and sudden stop applications, and is intended to deliver superior performance over a long working life.

The HPB is available in two-face or four-face configurations offering a brake torque range of 80 to 5,000Nm. Stromag has combined the latest design and manufacturing technologies with its 86 years of experience in mechanical systems to create a design that offers maximum performance in a small space envelope. The company has paid particular attention to the thermal characteristics of the brake, achieving superior heat dissipation for reliable dynamic performance.

The internal components of the HPB are all designed to resist corrosion and offer enhanced durability where exposure to salt water or other contaminants is likely. The new brake range is available in IP67 rated configurations, allowing it to operate where flooding or immersion in seawater is a possibility.

Considerable attention has also been paid to the electrical design of the brake, with rectifiers and quick switching units that optimise the switching characteristics and offer easiest installation. To aid integration in customer applications, it is available with a wide range of options, including tachometer mounting, an anti-condensation heater and microswitches to monitor switching operations and wear.

Applications for the HPB brake range include cranes, winches and hoists in harbour, marine or offshore applications. The new brake is also suitable for use in industrial environments where long-term reliability and resistance to harsh environments is a priority.
