Brakes is one of the most important parts of a vehicle. Reducing the speed of a vehicle or bringing a vehicle to a stop is the functions of brakes. Brakes are of different types. Electric brake is one of the types of brakes. When slowing a vehicle or bringing it to a stop electric brakes use a different mechanism to that of mechanical brakes. Electromagnetic forces are the ones that electric brakes use to slow or stop a vehicle, unlike mechanical brakes that use friction. Therefore, I would not be wrong when I say electric brakes are one of the wonders of today’s world. The electromagnetic forces that electric brakes use to slow or completely stop a vehicle carrying loads of cargo comes about by adjusting the AC and DC of a vehicle.
There are numerous advantages of electric brakes. Low maintenance costs, allowing a vehicle to stop and start quickly, increased productivity and provide better safety in loads of different applications are some of the reasons why electric brakes are better than typical brakes. The braking system of your vehicle can be upgraded by equipping the vehicle with electric brakes. Your life will become better with electric brakes. Electric brakes are of different types for every type of machinery. There are several disadvantages of mechanical brakes. Some of the disadvantages of mechanical brakes are production downtime and costly maintenance.
Short stop electronic motor brakes is one of the types of electric brakes. Some of the advantages of short stop electronic motor brakes are increased productivity, reduced maintenance and repair expenses, provide a safer environment when quick stopping, minimise costly downtime and eliminate coasting. There are three models of short stop electronic brakes. Some of the models of short stop motor brakes are G series brakes, a series brakes, and D series brakes. Another type of electric motor brakes is the chipper stopper.
The use of chipper stopper mostly happens in high inertia applications. Chipper stoppers are less costly than their mechanical counterparts. There are various specifications of chipper stoppers and some of them are increased safety, best suited for high inertia load applications, provide the user with more control, have similar control features to those found in short stop series, allow proper load balancing and have rapid repair turnaround. The best version of electric brakes to use if you want to eliminate wind milling or the coasting effect in your vehicle is the fan stop. A fan stop causes stopping action by creating a magnetic field that is stationary within the motor. Star brakes are the other type of electric brakes. Star brakes are used for applications such as metalworking, woodworking, sanders, moulders, grinders and saws.
