A brake motor is a type of electric motor that is equipped with a brake system. The brake system is used to stop the motor quickly and reliably when power to the motor is turned off or in the event of an emergency stop. The brake system typically includes a mechanical brake that is applied to the motor shaft or the motor’s rotor, along with an electrical circuit that releases the brake when power is applied to the motor.
Brake motors are commonly used in applications where it is important to have precise control over the stopping position of the motor, such as in machine tools, cranes, and hoists. They can also be used in applications where it is important to prevent the motor from coasting after power is turned off, such as in conveyors and other types of material handling equipment.
