Maintenance-reducing oil shear coupler brake

 

Posistop oil shear coupler brakes are declared “an ideal replacement for electric brakes often found mounted on the back of a special braker motor.”

They mount to the working end of a standard C-face motor to eliminate the need for a special brake motor. This means the motor can be used for nonbrake applications as well, reducing motor inventory, notes the manufacturer. This may also allow use of a fan-cooled motor which is sometimes incapable with brake mounted on the fan end.

To reduce maintenance and downtime, Posistop is applicable in practically any use in which common electrically released motor brakes are found.
