The versatile INTORQ BFK458 modular system also includes dual brakes. These consist of two equal sub-brakes. That means they reliably meet all legal requirements for redundancy – such as for passenger elevators or aerials.
With this spring-applied brake, safety is taken twice as seriously: If the first fail safe brake doesn't engage, the second brake takes over. Another advantage of the dual brake: The two sub-brakes engage offset despite the simultaneous control. This means the braking is smooth and fluid. The dual design of the INTORQ BFK458 is also ideally suited to smaller installation spaces: The two successively switched brakes provide a high braking torque yet have a small diameter.
