Specifically designed for decline conveyors with a fail-safe requirement, the EC100 RollerDrive features a mechanical rotor-locking break. The drive’s spring-loaded failsafe brake prevents drifting on inclines while ensuring smooth operation and low noise emission. The brake mechanism requires no special control, as two wires are attached to the main power bus. The brake does not cycle with each start and stop of the conveyor. As long as the power bus is on, the magnetic force created by the solenoid keeps the rotor free.
