Schoellhorn-Albrecht offers the most comprehensive line of solenoid actuated brakes (SAB's) on the market today. Many brakes operating today are 40 years old. Stearns electric motor brakes can be mounted directly to an electric motor or foot mounted. The compact design delivers high torque in a small size with fast, positive response and no residual drag when re-leased.
Our brakes can be mounted directly onto NEMA C-face electric motors without special alignment procedures. Many motor manufacturers offer a brake kit which will convert a stock fan-cooled motor into a brake motor. Solenoid Actuated Brakes feature unitized construction which makes servicing friction discs easy using only a screwdriver and wrench. The friction material is non-asbestos.
