Warner Electric Introduces New ERX Brakes Range and the WES Contactless Sensor
Warner Electric has released a new range of pre-assembled electromagnetic brakes that offer superior performance for stopping and parking applications. The brakes can be specified in standard, high-torque or high-speed configurations and with a selection of accessories included. Thanks to its modular design and efficient stock holding, Warner Electric is able to offer thousands of variations with a very short lead time. Additionally, the integrality of the brakes range offered by Warner Electric is now equipped with the latest contactless sensor WES. Warner has developed this innovative technology for monitoring electromagnetic brakes in elevators and stage/theatre applications. Backwards compatible with conventionalelectromechanical microswitches, but with none of their inherent limitations, the patent-pending WES contactless sensor brings improved reliability to electromagnetic brake monitoring and adds the capability for predictive maintenance, eliminating unscheduled downtime.
