Increasing digitization demands that data on drive and brake systems can also be evaluated. Electromagnetic brakes offer the perfect basis for this because of their design principle. Kendrion supports the system providers in the implementation and evaluation of the signals present in the brakes and specifies the limits to be set for the respective application.
The coil integrated in the magnetic circuit of an electromagnetic brake already supplies, without additional sensors, a multiplicity of information which can be evaluated by the control unit. The number of switching cycles, the total switching work or the electrical current during opening or closing are information that can be recorded, evaluated and used with each electromagnetic brake. This results in important data on the operating and service life of the brake integrated in an automation system. These are used for preventive maintenance or for error analysis and can be used for.
