Lenze Brake Rectifiers

Lenze 7/18/2018

Rectifiers convert AC voltage supply to DC supply. Output voltages are calculated as follows:

• Bridge rectifier (full wave) Vdc =  Vac/1.1
• Half wave rectifier Vdc = Vac/2.2

Type 14.630.13/14
Matchbox sized rectifiers with varistor protection. When dc switching, a suppressor  should be used. Dimensions: body 38.6 x 25 x 17.5 deep with provision for M3 screws on base or backface, holes 44mm apart.

Lenze Brake RectifiersType B3-18464/B3-17720
Rectifiers rated for ac or dc switching of medium to large inductive brake coils. When dc switching a suppressor should be used. Dimensions: footprint 70 x 31mm, height 38mm, 2 fixing holes 4.1mm x 60mm.

• Full Wave                           • Half Wave
• Max voltage 275V              • Max voltage 575V
• Output 250V dc/2A max    • Output 250V dc/2A max
• Temp range 0-60ºC           • Temp range 0-60ºC

Type B3-90044 Automatic DC Switching
A new design of bridge rectifier with internal dc switching that operates automatically when power is removed, so speeding brake engagement and suiting frequency stop/starting. Suits panel or terminal box mounting, dimensions 49.5 x 31 x 20 deep, fixing holes 3.3mm x 38mm apart.
• Supply 300V AC max
• Output 2A at –20 to +40ºC, 1A at +40 to +70ºC

Type B3-93500 Forced Voltage
A new low cost and compact forced voltage rectifier for terminal box or panel mounting. The unit switches internally from full wave to half wave supply after approx. 0.25s. This allows faster brake release by matching the half wave supply to the coil, alternatively faster brake engagement by matching the full wave supply.
• Panel or terminal box mount, 61 x 50 x 20 deep, fixing holes 3.3mm x 38mm apart.
• Supply 200-500V ac
• Output 1A at –20 to +40ºC, 0.5A at +40 to +70ºC

Type B3-69500 Forced Voltage
A force voltage half wave rectifier suitable for faster energising of larger d.c. brakes. When the a.c. supply is switched on the unit transmits the full waveform for about 0.5 seconds. It then switches internally to transmit half the waveform for holding the brake. Switching the brake coil on the d.c. side of the rectifier is essential for lifts and hoists. Coil selection is the same as for standard half wave rectifiers. CSA and UL approved. When d.c. switching a suppressor should be used.
• Input: 440V a.c. max
• Output: 250V d.c. 3 A max
• Temperature range: 0 to 60°C
• Fixing holes diameter: 4.5mm
