Brake & load unit (PT 500.05)

Brake & load unit (PT 500.05)

generation of a loading torque



  • Many vibration phenomena can only be achieved when the system is under load.
  • The brake and load unit is used to generate vibration as a function of torque, e.g. in toothed gearing mechanisms or electric motors.
  • It consists of a magnetic particle brake and an electric display and control unit.
  • The braking torque can be finely adjusted on the display and control unit.
  • The exciter current is applied as a measure of the braking torque and is indicated digitally on a display.
  • An integrated belt drive, with a free shaft, provides the brake with two torque and speed ranges.
  • The energy is converted by the brake into heat and discharged to the ambient air by a fan.
  • The brake can be quickly and precisely mounted on the slotted plate of the PT 500base unit.
  • PT 500.05is used with the following kits:
    – PT 500.13 Couplings
    – PT 500.14 Belt drive
    – PT 500.15 Damage to gears
    – PT 500.19 Electromechanical vibrations
