This power off brake offers large bore sizes, low backlash, high torque-to-size ratio, a high number of index positions, positive engagement and a reliable coil with custom voltages available.

Highlights of the SETB include:

  • Less than 0.5° of backlash within the brake once properly installed
  • A high number of index positions
  • High temperature Class H insulation fully potted coil rated for 180°C
