Magpower Linksys are manufacturers of Electromagnetic Clutches and Brakes which are intended for Start-Stop applications. They come in various types to meet different requirements.
Magpower Electromagnetic Single Face Clutch Type EC is a “Normally Off” Type Clutch. It has 2 basic parts. The stator which consists of a coil and a rotor faced with friction material, 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.
