The KNOTT range of electromagnetic brakes

Electromagnetic brakes can be designed not only as positive but also as negative brakes. Actuation of the brake occurs by the supply of current or by interrupting the current supply. These brakes are used predominantly in applications with electric drives, such as conveyors, industrial trucks or electric vehicles, but also for a range of industrial applications. Knott offers electromagnetic  Brakes in association with its Indian joint venture partner Vortex, under the name Knott-Vortex. Vortex is a specialist manufacturer of clutches and electromagnetic brakes.
