Spring-applied brakes are used as modular components in electrical drives to decelerate or bring masses to a defined stop - even in the event of the loss of the power supply. Spring applied brakes are generally used as "on or off brakes", whereby the availability of the power supply determines the activation and deactivation of the braking torque.

Mechatronic Brake System

However, it is often necessary to decelerate the drive with variable braking torque. This option is supported by the mechatronic brake system, which comprises a standard INTORQ BFK458 spring-applied brake and the INTORQ Control electronic control unit. The mechatronic brake system makes it possible to set the braking torque of spring-applied brakes precisely with an "electronic brake pedal".

If you are looking for INTORQ Mechatronic Brake System, please call us at (844) 331-9371 or email us at we will do our best to help you find the INTORQ Control that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for INTORQ BFK458 spring-applied brake technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

Similarly, the brake control is also able to detect the wear status of the brake. This means that brake maintenance can be carried out as and when required and the reliability of the brake system is increased. Furthermore, the INTORQ Control features a CAN bus connection which supports remote diagnosis of the brake, remote control of all functions and the operation of the brake control as part of a networked system.

INTORQ Control can be combined with three-phase DC and AC motors and support drive dynamics in numerous applications.

The following operating modes, which can be parameterised easily on a PC with Windows software, have been implemented for flexibility of application:

  • Pedal-controlled braking (manual selection of braking torque)
  • Ramp-controlled braking (time-controlled selection of braking torque)
  • Sensor-controlled braking (load-dependent selection of braking torque)
  • Speed-controlled braking (stopping time independent of load and speed)
  • Control via CAN bus (networking of brakes and frequency inverters)
