Brake Instructions

Read carefully before attempting to assemble, install, operate or maintain the product described. Protect yourself
and others by observing all safety information. Failure to comply with instructions could result in personal injury
and/or property damage! Retain instructions for future reference. When unpacking the brake, inspect it carefully
for damage that may have occurred during transit.

Bulletin No. BK4804 (10/10)

4740 WEST ELECTRIC AVENUE MILWAUKEE, WI 53219 PHONE 414/672-7830 FAX 414/672-5354 www. dingsbrakes.com


Brake performance and features must be carefully matched to the
requirements of the application.

Consideration must be given to torque requirements, especially where
an overhauling condition exists, as well as thermal capacity, ambient
temperature, atmospheric explosion hazards, type of enclosure and any
other unusual conditions.

Improper selection and installation of a brake and/or lack of maintenance
may cause brake failure which could result in damage to property and/or
injury to personnel.

If injury to personnel could be caused by brake failure, additional means
must be provided to insure safety of personnel.

Do not operate manual release or energize brake coil before installation,
in order to preserve prealignment of rotating discs for ease of installation.


This brake is direct acting, electromagnetically released and spring set.
It uses rotating and stationary disc contact to supply positive braking
action. It retains quick release and setting capabilities at all times.

Simplicity of design has reduced maintenance to an absolute minimum.
As with any electromechanical equipment, however, periodic inspection
and adjustment will assure optimum performance. As the friction disc
wears, the magnet gap will increase. The magnet gap should be check
periodically and adjusted when necessary.


HOUSINGS - Cast iron and aluminum.
DUTY - Rated for continuous duty.
VOLTAGES - All standard NEMA voltages and frequencies available.
Other voltages and frequencies are optional.
MOUNTING - Direct to NEMA “C” motor flanges. Adaptors for larger or
smaller frames, foot mounting and vertical mounting are available.
SHAFTS - NEMA standard length motor shafts and thru shafts may be
used on all models except units with Mark II Release (Cover modification
required for thru shafts).
