A vehicle has many parts but one of the most important ones is the brakes. 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. The mechanism that electric brakes use to slow a vehicle or bring it to a stop is different from 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. Electric brakes slow or completely stop a vehicle carrying loads of cargo through electro magnetic forces that come about by adjusting the AC and DC of a vehicle.
The advantages of electric brakes are numerous. Some of the reasons why electric brakes are better than typical brakes are low maintenance costs, allowing a vehicle to stop and start quickly, increased productivity and provide better safety in loads of different applications. The braking system of your vehicle can be upgraded by equipping the vehicle with electric brakes. Your life will become better with electric brakes. Every type of machinery has its type of electric brakes. There are several disadvantages of mechanical brakes. Mechanical brakes have numerous disadvantages and some of them are production downtime and costly maintenance.
One of the types of electric brakes is short stop electronic motor brakes. Increased productivity, reduced maintenance and repair expenses, provide a safer environment when quick stopping, minimise costly downtime and eliminate coasting are some of the advantages of short stop electronic motor brakes. Short stop electronic brakes are of three models. G series brakes, a series brakes, and D series brakes are some of the models of short stop motor brakes. Chipper stopper is another type of electric motor brakes.
High inertia applications are the ones that mostly use chipper stoppers. The cost of chipper stoppers is less than that of 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. If you want to eliminate wind milling or the coasting effect in your vehicle, the best version of electric brakes to use is the fan stop. A fan stop causes stopping action by creating a magnetic field that is stationary within the motor. Electric brakes also have come in another type referred to as the star brakes. Star brakes are used for applications such as metalworking, woodworking, sanders, moulders, grinders and saws.
