The new PKP Series stepper motors are now available with built-in power-off activated electromagnetic brakes. When power is accidentally cut off due to unexpected events, such as a blackout, the electromagnetic brake holds the load in position to prevent it from moving. When the motor is at standstill, it can be held by the electromagnetic brake. The electromagnetic brake can also be used to suppress the heat generated from the motor by switching off the motor current and using the brake as the holding function.
