Magtrol's newest series of hysteresis brakes - Ideal for low torque / high speed applications

04 April 2008

April 4, 2008, BUFFALO, NEW YORK— Magtrol has announced a new addition to their line of Hysteresis brakes. The AHB Series Compressed-air-cooled Hysteresis Brakes are ideal for low-torque/high-speed applications with exceptional power absorption ratings.

Magtrol’s AHB series Hysteresis Brakes’ unique design features passages that run through the brake enabling compressed air cooling and providing excellent heat dissipation. This design allows for continuous power ratings up to 3000 watts (5300 watts intermittent). Use of pre-loaded bearings in the brakes allows operation at speeds of up to 25,000 rpm for extended durations. The AHB brakes are conveniently base mounted for easy wiring and feature all metric dimensioning.

The AHB Series Hysteresis Brakes can be used in numerous applications including motor test, durability/reliability verification, brush run-in, carburetor tuning and high-speed tension control. When mounted to a PT Series T-slot Base Plate, a cost –effective, basic motor test rig can be easily configured. For this purpose, Magtrol offers several accessories and system options to choose from. The simplest test bench may include one or two AHB Brakes and an AMF Adjustable Motor Fixture mounted onto a T-Slotted Base Plate. Adding a TM Series In-Line Torque Transducer, couplings, FR10 Free-Run Speed Sensor, 3410 Torque Display or DSP6001 Controller greatly expands the system’s motor testing capabilities.

Magtrol is a globally respected manufacturer of high-quality products to test, measure and control torque-speed-power, load-force-weight, tension and displacement.
