(See Figures 3 & 4 and Tables 1 & 2)
1. Remove hub (31) from brake and position on motor

shaft with key according to dimension “N”. Stamped

part number on hub should face away from motor.
Tighten hub set screws with 60 lb. ft. torque.
2. Remove cover nuts (21) and cover (19).
3. Place brake on motor, guiding discs on hub.
4. Bolt brake to motor “C” face with four 5/8 inch

socket head cap screws. See Figure 4 for screw
length through bracket.

5. Connect coil leads per appropriate wiring diagram

in Figure 2 and replace cover.


(See Figure 3)

To operate release, rotate two rods (5) clockwise
until stop screw (17) hits pin. Brake will remain in
released position until rods are manually returned
to original position, or until electrical power is
restored which automatically returns the release
rods to the set position.


(See Figures 3 & 4 and Table 2)

Brake is factory set for rated torque per spring length “H”. To increase
stopping time and lower torque, turn four locknuts (9) counterclockwise,
increasing dimension “H”. All four springs must be set to the same length.
Do not decrease spring length “H” as this may cause coil to burn out.


(See Figures 3 & 4, Table 2)
Magnet gap “D” increases as friction discs wear. When gap approaches
“D” max., adjust gap to “D” min. dimension by turning nuts (11 and 13).
Magnet gap can vary from nominal + .005” between corners. After setting
gap, readjust torque spring length “H”. Apply 55 lb-ft torque to bottom
jam nuts (11). NOTE: Nut should be black in color.



(See Figures 3 & 4, Table 2)
*When the rotating friction disc (3) wears down to a thickness of 1/4”,
replace disc.
1. Remove cover nuts (21) and cover (19).
2. Unhook loop of torsion springs (10) from pins at rear of magnet plate

(12). Remove release stop screws (17) and shim washers (14 & 15).

3. Remove adjusting lock nuts (11), magnet assembly (12), adjusting

nuts (13), torque nuts (9), washers (8), torque spring (7) and pressure
plate (6).

4. Remove friction disc (3) and stationary disc (4). Replace worn

friction discs.

5. Reassemble all parts in reverse order. Set spring length “H” and

magnet gap “D”. Apply 40 lb-ft torque to bottom jam nuts (11).
Assemble manual release. See “Manual Release Assembly”.

(See Figures 2 & 3)

Remove magnet assembly (12) as outlined under

Coils are held in place with epoxy cement. Force coil off magnet
mounting plate and remove excess epoxy from all surfaces.

Replacement coils should be held in place with new epoxy cement.
The epoxy cement should be heat resist ant and shock resistant.

When installing coils, it is very important to follow EXACTLY the
sequence of black and light colored leads as shown in wiring diagram
(Figure 2). The brake will not operate properly unless coils are all in
the correct position.


(See Figure 3)

When assembling a standard manual release mechanism (Figure 3),
add only enough shim washers (14 & 15) to obtain proper release
action. Too many shim washers will prevent automatic reset when
electrical power is applied. Too few washers will prevent the motor
shaft from turning freely. Replace stop screws (17). Wind each torsion
spring (10) approximately 1/4 turn and hook spring loop over pin.
