Magpower Linksys are manufacturers of Clutches and Brakes which are intended for start-stop application. They come in various types to meet different requirements.
The Bearing Mounted Clutch Type BMC is a “Normally Off” type Clutch. It has 2 basic parts, the bearing mounted stator consisting of a coil and a rotor faced with friction material held to the stator by means of the bearing, and the Armature plate. When current flows through the Clutch Coil, the Armature plate is attracted to the rotor with friction material thereby transmitting the torque and is released immediately due to a sinusoidal wave spring when no current is passing through the coil.
These Clutches are used for Dry Applications only.
