SEW Eurodrive

Using 2 motors arranged in parallel with individual brakes is a common solution for implementing a safe brake system in industrial environments or in entertainment technology applications. This solution is safe but neither space saving nor cost-efficient. With the introduction of the modern BF**/BT** double brake, SEW-EURODRIVE now offers the option of implementing a safe brake system with 2 redundant partial brakes on a single drive.

Both double brake types achieve Performance Level e (PL e) in industrial and entertainment technology applications, for example in theaters.

Advantages of the double brake: reduced installation space, less installation effort and consequently lower costs. Integrated in a safe brake system, double brakes offer entirely new possibilities in the field of functional safety for persons and machinery.

A new HT manual brake release option is available in addition to the HR manual brake release with automatic re-engaging function that allows to release both partial brakes of the double brake simultaneously. The new option offers the same basic function as the HR option but comes equipped with a special mechanism on the manual release lever. This mechanism allows for releasing one of the two partial brakes or both partial brakes at the same time.

Also new: the optional brake diagnostic unit /DUE (Diagnostic Unit Eddy Current). The sensor system monitors the two partial brakes permanently for function and wear, and does this in a contactless manner. This system shows the switching state of the brake, monitors the permitted wear, and permanently measures the current working air gap.

Operating Instructions

Smaller holding torques are required for inverter operation.Today's brakes are often oversized. This is why the new modular motor system from SEW-EURODRIVE makes it possible to choose from up to three brake sizes for each motor size. The BE brake is based on the extremely successful BM(G) brake, but was further developed in many aspects.

The brake size has always been inevitably connected to the motor size. "Less" brake was only possible by reducing the braking torque with a modified brake spring. The new combination options of DR motors with BE brakes are no longer subject to this inflexibility. The DR motor can be combined with two or three different BE brake sizes.
