Brake modules

The world of industry is constantly evolving, requiring high-performance equipment and systems to guarantee the safety and proper functioning of machines. Among these key elements are the braking modules.

Understanding the braking system: a question of energy

In order to fully understand the importance of braking modules, it is first necessary to review the general principle of braking. When it comes to stopping a moving engine or machine, we talk about converting kinetic energy into thermal energy. In other words, the braking device aims to slow down and finally stop a load by transforming its energy into heat.

What is a braking module?

A braking module is a device intended to manage the braking process of electric machines and motors. It mainly acts as a voltage regulator between the motor and the power supply, thus allowing secure and optimized management of the shutdown of the machine concerned. These modules are designed to be compatible with various types of motors and machines, while adapting to the specific needs of each industrial application.

The role of braking modules

The main objective of the braking modules is to ensure precise and safe stopping of electrically driven machines, whether conveyors, elevators, cranes or even machine tools. These act by controlling the intensity of the current sent to the motor, thus allowing progressive and controlled braking. They also help protect equipment by preventing overheating and other malfunctions.

What are the characteristics of the braking modules?

Brake modules have several technical characteristics which vary depending on the models and applications for which they are designed.

Type of braking: direct or indirect

There are two main types of braking used by the modules:

- Direct braking: it is characterized by immediate action on the machine's braking system. The braking module directly regulates the voltage applied to the motor, resulting in fast and precise braking.

- Indirect braking: here, the braking module acts in a more progressive manner by adjusting the voltage across the motor terminals to slow down and then stop its movement. This type of braking allows better energy management and limits mechanical stress on the machines.

Power and braking capacity

Braking power and capacity are essential criteria when choosing an application-specific module. These two elements determine the speed and efficiency with which the module can stop the machine in question. It is therefore essential to take into account the dimensions, weight, speed and conditions of use of each piece of equipment in order to select a suitable module.

Compatibility with different types of engines and machines

Braking modules are designed for use with a wide variety of electric motors and machines, such as asynchronous motors and servo motors. To guarantee optimal performance, it is recommended to check the compatibility of the chosen braking module with the type of motor to be braked.

What are the advantages of a high-performance braking module?

Using a braking module adapted to the specific needs of a machine has several advantages:

- Reinforced safety: thanks to their controlled and precise action, the braking modules help to limit the risk of accidents and other incidents linked to the malfunction of industrial equipment.

- Increased reliability: progressive and controlled stopping reduces mechanical stress on machines, which results in less wear on parts and more reliable operation.

- Energy efficiency: by regulating the voltage applied to the motors during the braking process, the braking modules make it possible to better manage the energy consumed and thus save electricity.

- Ease of installation and reduced maintenance: thanks to their compact design, the braking modules can be easily integrated into existing electrical equipment. In addition, their increased reliability limits maintenance interventions.

Its use not only guarantees precise and safe shutdown, but also preserves the lifespan of equipment by limiting mechanical and thermal constraints.
