With no friction surfaces,
is accurate and repeatable regardless of slip speed. Torque
is not affected by slip speed. No slip/stick makes them the most
accurate devices available even at slips speeds to zero rpm.
Life is virtually unlimited for precise tensioning or
torque limiting even in 24 hour/day service. Torque is infinitely
adjustable by rotating the knurled
end of the unit.
They can be mounted horizontally or vertically with no ill effects.
They are ideal for constant slip applications where friction or magnetic
particle brakes would wear out, provide inconsistent torque, or contaminate
the environment. Slip speeds are limited only by the unit's heat dissipation
Brake life is not derated as torque or slip speeds increase unlike
friction devices which must reduce allowable torque or slip speed to improve
life ratings. There is no break-in period and torque will not change
for the life of the clutch.
High quality materials are
used throughout. Including:
* High quality ABEC bearings.
* Precision ground, alloy steel shaft.
* Temperature stabilized rare earth magnets.
including special shafts / mounting / torque / stainless steel construction
/ metric dimensions.
