Crompton Modules

To ensure compliance with the PUWER 98 regulations, machines such as woodworking equipment must be fitted with a suitable automatic braking device, which ensures the tool stops moving within 10 seconds
They must be fitted to new and current equipment
Fitting of a brake module is easy, with minimum of disruption to existing wiring when retro-fitting
3 phase
Adjustable dc injection time 0.5-25s
Integral DOL starter
IP55 protection rating


These types of units are suitable for applications requiring compliance with PUWER 98.

DC Brake Modules

A powerbrake unit is used where fast, efficient and predictable stopping of a machine in the shortest possible time is required. Using the d.c. injection method, it provides a controlled deceleration to a stop, by injecting a d.c. current into two of the motor terminals and neutralising the rotating magnetic field in the motor after the 3 phase supply has been disconnected. This stops the motor coasting to a halt and reduces the delay time by this enforced braking. They can be used with a standard 3 phase induction motor. The unit may be located on a piece of machinery or adjacent to it, with little disruption or modification required to the existing wiring. The Powerbrake units provide a simple cost-effective solution to motor braking, which is maintenance and wear-free.,Brake Module - For a brake unit, all the control wiring has to be supplied and installed by the customer, including interlocked contactors and pushbuttons.,Production Brakes - Enclosed brakes with all control wiring included, optional DOL starter built in Injects DC on EVERY stop.,Critical Brake - Enclosed brake with contactors built in. Must be used with existing starter, also AC must pass through the unit so that it can be isolated before DC is injected. Only injects DC when E-stop activated.
