Video: Fit For Industry 4.0
With Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and Services is entering companies. That is why Mayr power transmission offers safety brakes that are equipped for the challenges of the fourth industrial revolution. Brake technology 4.0 stands for the latest generation of monitoring modules: The modules such as Roba-brake-checker or Roba-torqcontrol enable permanent brake monitoring. The Roba-brake-checker module monitors sensors, in addition to the switching status, the traction path or traction power reserve and detects safety-critical changes in voltage, air gap and temperature.
When the tractive power reserve is reached, the Roba-brake-checker sends a warning signal so early that a certain operating time of the brake is still possible. During this time, the machine operator can carry out maintenance in a targeted manner - tailored to his work process. In addition, the module also controls the brake and thus replaces a rectifier. Switching status monitoring and brake control are combined in one device.
Braking movements gently and in a controlled manner
For applications that require braking torque control in addition to condition monitoring, Mayr power transmission offers the braking torque control module Robatorqcontrol. It shares the properties of the Roba brake checker and can also change the amount of braking torque during operation by specifically influencing the current and voltage. Devices and machines can be decelerated smoothly and evenly. The Roba-torqcontrol module offers the option of setting up control loops and intelligently braking movements - the basis for use in a smart, networked machine.
New friction lining technology for compact brakes
The developers at Mayr power transmission have succeeded in creating a new friction lining technology with which the brakes achieve a further improved torque consistency and a higher power density. With the new multi-layer pads, higher braking torques and higher surface-specific friction work can be achieved, which means that the brakes are more compact with the same properties. For higher braking torques and more heavily used brakes, a smaller, lighter brake size can be selected. This takes into account the general trend that machines and their components, such as motors, are becoming ever more compact and powerful. (ud)
