Elvem manufactures self-braking asynchronous electric motors with three-phase aluminum and cast iron casing, single-phase and double polarity. Elvem self-braking motors are available in all efficiency classes. The brake can be in alternating current, brake C, or DC, brake K, R, S, H; high or low braking torque. The size ranges from MEC 63 to 280; 2, 4, 6, and 8 pole versions are available, with two poles and a single phase. Production is divided according to the main types of the brake. The purpose of the brake is to stop the rotation of the mechanical shaft.

Different criteria determine the definition of the braking torque, and it can be chosen based on project data.
In addition to the technical data and the calculation of the same — information available in the download area or by contacting our technicians — it is important to know other elements, such as environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, dust, etc.) and motor assembly position, which can prove useful in determining the most efficient operating mode of the brake.
