DECOMMISSIONING:

  • The brake must be disposed of in accordance with all the applicable national, state and local regulations.

 The brake must be disposed of in accordance with all the applicable national, state and local regulations.

THEORY OF OPERATION

The brake construction consists of two stators, a rotor, a coil assembly, magnetic powder, and two bearings. The bearings support and align the rotor with the stators, and allow the rotor to rotate within the brake assembly. The magnetic powder occupies the space between the stators and the rotor, and represents a key element in the operation of the brake.

The stators are connected to the machine frame through a torque arm and remain stationary. The rotor is connected to a rotating machine shaft, which supports the weight of the brake. The magnetic powder functions as the adjustable bond or link between the stators and the rotor. It is the medium for the transmission of torque.

An electric current in the coil creates a magnetic field (flux), which passes through the stators, magnetic powder, and the rotor. The flux aligns the powder particles, forming a bond or link between the stators and the rotor. The strength of the bonding action (torque) is proportional to the amount of current in the coil. The torque is transmitted to the rotating shaft through the rotor. See figure 1 for a cross-sectional view of the brake.

  1. Unpack the brake, check for completeness and transport damages and verify the nameplate. The GBE/M and GBF/M models should be packed with 2 eye bolts to facilitate lifting and positioning of the brake.
  2. The rotor shaft centerline must be mounted within 30° of the horizontal plane.
  3. Prior to installation, manually check the rotation of the rotor to observe that it is smooth and free of binding or scraping.
  4. Mount the brake on the shaft and tighten the two set screws in the collar using the torque from table 1. This willprevent axial movement of the brake. The GBE/M and GBF/M models have eye bolts which may be installed in the threaded holes to facilitate lifting and positioning of the brake. After installation of the brake on the shaft, remove the eye bolts and store in a safe place for use when removing the brake from the shaft for repair.
    WARNING – Danger due to falling or flying objects.
    Do not leave the lifting eye bolts installed during operation of the brake. These could come loose and fall or be projected from the brake during operation.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION

WARNING – Death or injury can result from electric shocks.
Installation of the brake device must be performed when there is no electrical power in the system.

Never break the electrical connection to the device with a switch or similar component while the brake device is energized. The inductive voltage generated by breaking the current flow may breakdown the coil insulation system and may pose a shock hazard. Destruction of the electronics of the power amplifier or control unit may also occur.

Never place electrical cables under mechanical strain. Always route wiring in either flexible or rigid conduit.

Protection class 1: Protection class 1 is based on an intact basic insulation and when all conductive parts are connected to the PE (Protective Earth) conductor on the permanent installation.

All wiring must comply with the essential requirements of the appropriate standard(s) and is the responsibility of the installer.

Wiring to the brake and blower kit must be insulated copper wire with a temperature rating of at least 105 ⁰C. The wire size should be 0.52 or 0.82 mm2 (20 or 18 AWG).

The tightening torque for the terminals is 0.4 N-m (3.5 lb-in).

MAINTENANCE

WARNING – Death or injury can result from electric shocks.
Maintenance and repair of the brake device must be performed when there is no electrical power in the system.
WARNING – Danger of injury from crushing.
Maintenance and repair of the brake device must be performed only when the machine has been stopped and has been secured from being turned on again.
WARNING – Danger of falling down or muscle or skeletal injury during maintenance and repair.
The brake devices, especially the larger designs, are heavy. Appropriate equipment is to be used and the safety rules of the company must be observed.

Due to its small number of moving components and its basic design, maintenance of the brake is generally necessary only after extended service. The main loss of function occurs by the magnetic powder eventually deteriorating and manifests itself as the maximum torque of the brake slowly decreasing until it no longer produces sufficient torque for the application. When a problem appears in the system, ensure that all couplings, belts, etc., and the control device are functioning properly. Use the Troubleshooting guide below to determine the cause of the problem. For general maintenance, the brakes can be rebuilt with a repair kit. A repair kit includes a new powder charge and the appropriate bearings, seals and snap rings generally needed to rebuild the unit.

NOTE: When ordering parts not contained in the kit, provide the model number, serial number and parts list item number and description from Figure 1.

TROUBLESHOOTING

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE ACTION
Load is not controlled by brake Power supply voltage output low
Magnetic powder has deteriorated Coil is open
Replace or repair control
Overhaul the brake Replace coil
Load operates in an intermittent manner with proper voltage Coil is intermittently open Replace coil
Brake is noisy and has vibration Bearings are worn Overhaul brake using repair kit

DISASSEMBLY (Refer to Figure 1)

  1. Remove the set screws and collar from the rotor shaft and remove the brake from the shaft. For the GBE/M and GBF/M models use the supplied eye bolts to facilitate lifting and positioning of the brake.
  2. Remove the external snap rings from both sides of the rotor shaft.
  3. Remove the three (four) screws which hold the left and right stators together.
  4. Separate the stator frames by tapping on the end of the rotor with a soft mallet (all models exceptGBE/GBEM and GBF/GBFM). Tap on the right stator side first. The rotor will remain attached to the leftstator. For the GBE/GBEM/GBF/GBFM insert the 4 bolts removed in step 3 into the tapped holes in the left stator frame and screw them in evenly to separate the stator halves.
    NOTE: Removal of the junction box and cover are not required.
    CAUTION – Damage to the stator halves may occur.
    Do not attempt to pry the left and right stators apart with a screwdriver or wedge. This can damage the mating surfaces and could result in a loss of torque.
  5. Remove the coil and the coil gaskets from the stators.
  6. Remove the rotor from the left stator by tapping on the rotor shaft with a soft mallet from the left stator side.
  7. Remove the powder seals from the stators by prying around the inner lip with a screwdriver.
  8. Remove the internal snap rings from both stators.
  9. Press the bearing out of each stator.
  10. Remove the powder fill screw (and washer for GBA, GBAM, GBB & GBBM only) from the right stator. For all other models remove the blind rivet.

NOTE: Discard all bearings, powder seals, gaskets, snap rings and magnetic powder. These parts must be replaced, and are included in the repair kit.

RE-ASSEMBLY

CAUTION – Loss of torque due to grease or oil.
Re-assembly of the brake must be performed in a clean, dry area. The brake components must be cleaned with solvent, and must be dry and totally free of grease and oil. Grease or oil on the internal brake parts will cause loss of torque.

Do not immerse the coil in solvent. This may remove the varnish coating on the magnet wire and result in a shorted coil.

  1. Install the internal snap rings in the stators.
  2. Press the new powder seals into the left and right stators. The powder seals will bottom out on the internal snap rings.
    NOTE: The seal lip must face toward the inside of the brake.
  3. Support the rotor on a bench with the cross-drilled holes facing down. Wrap a 6″ x 6″ (152 mm x 152 mm) piece of stiff paper, thin plastic, or shim stock around the rotor shaft forming a sleeve. This will allow the powder seal to slide over the end of the rotor shaft and the external snap ring groove.=
  4. Slide the left stator and powder seal over the thin sleeve until it bottoms on the rotor. Pull the sleeve off the end of the rotor shaft.
  5. Press one bearing onto the end of the rotor shaft until it seats against the internal snap ring of the left stator.
    NOTE: The seal side of the bearing must face the inside of the brake.
  6. Apply 2 or 3 drops of wicking Loctite to the inner and outer race of both bearings. Wait ten seconds and wipe off the excess Loctite.
  7. Install the external snap ring on the rotor shaft.
  8. Turn this assembly over.
  9. Install the left side coil gasket.
    NOTE: For Models GBA, GBAM, GBB AND GBBM: Install the coil gasket into the slot in the left stator. Insure that the coil gasket is evenly seated all the way around the stator slot.
    NOTE: For Models GBC/GBCM, GBD/GBDM, GBE/GBEM and GBF/GBFM: Install the coil gasket into the slot in the coil bobbin. Insure that the coil gasket is evenly seated all the way around the bobbin slot. Use a few drops of instant adhesive to keep gasket from moving during assembly.
  10. Place the coil into the left stator with the leads exiting through the slot into the junction box.
  11. Install the right side coil gasket.
    NOTE: For Models GBA, GBAM, GBB AND GBBM: Install the coil gasket into the slot in the right stator. Insure that the gasket is evenly seated all the way around the stator slot.
    NOTE: For Models GBC/GBCM, GBD/GBDM, GBE/GBEM, and GBF/GBFM: Install the coil gasket into the slot in the coil bobbin. Insure that the coil gasket is seated evenly all the way around the bobbin slot. Use a few drops of instant adhesive to keep gasket from moving during assembly.
  12. Support the left stator assembly on a bench with the cross­drilled holes facing up. Wrap a 6″ x 6″ (152 mm x 152 mm) piece of stiff paper, thin plastic, or shim stock around the rotor shaft, forming a sleeve. This will allow the powder seal to slide over the end of the rotor shaft and the external snap ring groove. Slide the right stator and powder seal over the thin sleeve until it bottoms on the left stator assembly. Pull the sleeve off the end of the rotor shaft.
  13. Install the three (four) stator screws, split lockwashers, and nuts loosely.
    NOTE: The long stator screw should be installed 180° from the junction box.
  14. Press the other bearing onto the end of the rotor shaft until it seats against the internal snap ring of the right stator.
    NOTE: The seal side of the bearing must face the inside of the brake.
  15. Tighten the stator screws evenly until the left and right stators are clamped together.
  16. Apply 2 or 3 drops of wicking Loctite to the inner and outer race of both bearings. Wait ten seconds and wipe off the excess Loctite.
  17. Install the other external snap ring on the rotor shaft against the bearing. This step is made easier by supporting the brake on the opposite end of the rotor shaft.
    NOTE:
    Insure that the right bearing is seated against the internal snap ring before attempting to install the external snap ring
  18. Manually rotate the rotor shaft to insure smooth operation of the rotating parts.
  19. Place the brake on a clean piece of paper. Support the brake at 45° so that the cross-drilled holes are facing up. Fill the brake with all of the magnetic powder supplied in the repair kit. While filling, slowly rotate the rotor to evenly distribute the magnetic powder.
    NOTE: Collect any spilled magnetic powder from the clean paper and pour it into the brake.
  20. Install the powder fill screw (and washer for GBA, GBAM, GBB & GBBM only) into the right stator. All other models have a blind rivet.
  21. Install the collar and set screws onto the rotor shaft.
