Speed up your production process with DC brakes-0

In our conversations with customers, companies that use powerful equipment in the production process often encounter the following problem - equipment motors stop very slowly after a power outage and cause long downtime. Everyone has a common and logical question, how to speed up the process of stopping the engine?

In this article, we'll introduce you to PETER Electronic's DC Braking Module, which can effectively reduce the motor stop time, which can save money for your company and reduce unnecessary coffee breaks for your employees.

Peter Electronic has specialized in the production of electric motor control devices since 1976. The company's product range is being actively improved and renewed. Dynamic braking is one way to stop the motor quickly. DC brakes from Peter Electronic provide braking for various electrical equipment.

Dynamic braking is one of the types of braking of asynchronous electric motors, in which the stator winding is disconnected from the AC mains and switched on to direct voltage.

By using electronic DC brakes manufactured by PETER electronic, you can reduce your daily maintenance costs and extend the life of your equipment. The VersiBrake DC brake has an integrated idle detection function that allows you to reduce the deceleration time and thus increase the longevity of your equipment.
