Holding brake (option)
• The integrated or mounted holding brake is used to clamp the motor shaft when
• Restricted Emergency Stop operation is permissible. Up to 2000 braking operations can
• The rated voltage of the holding brake is 24 VDC.
Brakes with different principles of operation are used:
• Permanent-magnet brake
• Spring-operated brake
Both of the brake types operate according to the closed-circuit principle.

be executed with 300% rotor moment of inertia as external moment of inertia from a
speed of 3000 RPM without the brake being subject to an inadmissible amount of wear.
The specific highest switching work for each emergency braking operation may not be
The rated voltage is 24 VDC +/- 10%. Voltages outside this tolerance bandwidth can
result in faults.
Inadmissible wear means that the braking function can no longer be guaranteed! It is not
permissible to exceed the above specified Emergency Stop conditions or to repeatedly
briefly accelerate the motor against a holding brake that is still closed. This means that
the switching times of the brakes and relays must be taken into account in the drive
control and enable functions.
Motors with or without holding brake cannot be subsequently retrofitted!
Motors with holding brake are longer by the mounted space required
(refer to the dimension drawings).
