(607) 733-7121

Hilliard MK Guide Rail Brakes are designed for use on elevators, cranes, conveyors or other devises requiring a spring applied, electromagnetically released brake. This is direct acting braking system designed for holding duty and emergency stopping for guide rail or brake disc applications. The patented MK brake incorporates an electromagnetic coil that uses a voltage dropping circuit to minimize current draw and heat when brake is released. 

MK Rail and Disc Brakes are direct acting with only one moving part. Can be configured for various rail or disc thickness. Easy to install, manual release bolts included. Equipped with microswitch for monitoring brake status.

MK-350 Fail Safe Caliper Brake


The Hilliard MK350 is an electromagnetic, fail safe caliper brake. Spring applied, electric released, it is suitable for holding duty and emergency for applications such as conveyors, elevators and cranes. Alternative mounting arrangement: pin mounting, base mounting horizontal and base mounting angle. 

The MK350 is capable of producing a maximum 350 LBF of braking force with up to 210 VDC release voltage and 100 VDC holding voltage. Mounted on pins allowing for axial movement, it has an optional manual release mechanism for a momentarily brake release with a standard open-end or socket wrench.

Applications

Amusement / Stage Equipment - Cranes - Lifts/Elevators - Material Handling - Power Generation - Renewable Energy - Steel Industry

Type: Spring Applied / Electric Released
