IP Spring Applied Brakes

Industrial IP (Ingress Protected) Spring Applied Safety Brakes are typically mounted on a motor or drive shaft and are engineered to provide reliable power-off brake engagement. This specific IP industrial brake style is designed for rugged applications such as dynamic braking, holding, and provides weatherproof and waterproof braking capabilities.

IP Spring Applied Brakes

Our power-off engaged braking systems are available in two styles, BFK-457 and BFK-458 IP65 industrial brakes. Direct benefits that Spring Applied Brakes can provide for your application include:
  • Power-off engagement
  • High levels of holding torque
  • Weatherproof
  • Waterproof
  • IP65 rated
  • Failsafe operation
  • Long maintenance intervals

Failsafe Brake Options

Our Spring Applied Safety Brakes are available in two distinct product offerings, the BFK-457 and BFK-458, each offering unique qualities for various applications.

BFK-457 Spring Applied Brakes

The BFK-457 brake’s torque is generated by friction, which creates a failsafe operation when no current is applied. BFK-457 Spring Applied Brakes are engineered to be released electromagnetically and can be used wherever rapid deceleration of moving masses or controlled holding of masses is required.
BFK-457 Safety Brake Applications
  • Automation technology
  • General engineering
  • Industrial forklifts
  • Rotary indexing technology
  • Hoists
  • Woodworking machines
  • Materials handling technology

BFK-458 Spring Applied Brakes

Weatherproof BFK-458 Spring Applied Brakes are used wherever masses in motion must be decelerated as quickly as possible or where masses must be held in a defined position. The compression spring's braking force allows for sustained locking in a de-energized status. The BFK-458 failsafe brake is also available with an automatic release lever.
BFK-458 Safety Brake Applications
  • Conveyors
  • Cranes
  • Brake motors
  • Woodworking machines
  • Controlled drives
  • Escalators
  • Gate drives
  • Storage technology
  • Industrial trucks
  • Automation technology
  • Stage machinery
