One of the most important parts of a vehicle is the brakes. Brakes are used for reducing the speed of a vehicle or bring it to a stop. There are different types of brakes nowadays. One of the types of brakes is the electric brake. When slowing a vehicle or bringing it to a stop electric brakes use a different mechanism to 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, when I say electric brakes are one of the wonders of today’s world I would not be wrong. Adjusting the AC and DC of a vehicle leads to the creation of electromagnetic forces that electric brakes use to slow or completely stop a vehicle carrying loads of cargo.
There are numerous advantages of electric brakes. Low maintenance costs, allowing a vehicle to stop and start quickly, increased productivity and provide better safety in loads of different applications are some of the reasons why electric brakes are better than typical brakes. Equipping your with electric brakes is one of the ways of upgrade the vehicle’s braking system. 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.
Electric brakes are of different types and one of them is the short stop electronic motor brake. 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. There are three models of short stop electronic brakes. Some of the models of short stop motor brakes are G series brakes, a series brakes, and D series brakes. Also, there is the chipper stopper which is another type of electric motor brakes.
High inertia applications are the ones that mostly use chipper stoppers. Chipper stoppers are less costly than 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. The best version of electric brakes to use if you want to eliminate wind milling or the coasting effect in your vehicle is the fan stop. A fan stop creates a magnetic field that is stationary in the motor thus causing a stop action. Star brakes are the other type of electric brakes. The applications that star brakes are used in include metalworking, woodworking, sanders, moulders, grinders and saws.
