Assembly Kit for Three-phase Motors
Any standard off-the-shelf Siemens / MEZ electric motor can
be fitted with LENZE brake supplied as an assembly kit. In
order to be able to fit a BM brake to 71, 80 or 90 frame
electric motor you must have an access to a lathe to be able
to drill and tap a hole in the shaft which is not drilled and
tapped as standard as well as to modify the NDE shaft in the
way described below.

FITTING INSTRUCTIONS:
A. Dismantling parts from the standard motor
a) Dismantle motor fan cover by removing the holding screws.
c) Dismantle NDE endshield after removing all 4 screws which hold the endshield to the frame
The surfaces under the screw heads are not machined as standard to achieve sufficient planeness in the range of 0 to
0.4mm; it is therefore necessary to fit the machined enshield supplied as a part of the brake kit.
B. Brake fitting
B.a Frame Sizes 71, 80, 90:
a) Dismantle the front endshield and the rotor from the stator.
b) Fit the rotor in a lathe and drill and tap hole D in the NDE
shaft using the Drill Size specified in the table below.
c) Drill and tap hole S positioned approximately in the middle
of the turned-down end of the NDE shaft.

d) Fit the endshiled supplied but do not screw it on. Fit a Grub Screw S in the NDE shaft.
e) De-grease all contacting surfaces (shaft end, shaft face and shaft extension face)
f) Use LOCTITE 603 to fit the supplied Brake Hub onto the shaft. The Brake Hub keyway to be fitted over
the Grub Screw.
B.b Frame Sizes 100, 112, 132 (NDE shaft supplied drilled and tapped as standard):
a) Remove fan key and from NDE shaft.
b) Fit the endshiled supplied but do not screw it on.
c) Replace fan key in NDE shaft with the half-key supplied.
d) Heat the toothed Brake Hub to the temperature 280 to 300C and mount it on the NDE shaft end so the face
of the toothed Brake Hub is in line with the end of the shaft. If mounted at a lower temperature than 280C
the toothed Brake Hub would stretch and become unusable!
e) Before fitting the shaft extension the fan key must be inserted in its keyway (the larger keyway is for balancing
purposes and must be left without any key).
f) De-grease all contacting surfaces (shaft face and shaft extension face)
Continuation of FITTING INSTRUCTIONS common for all Frame Sizes:
g) Apply LOCTITE 603 on the NDE shaft face and Shaft Extension face and screw the Shaft Extension in.
h) Fit the brake itself attached to the steel braking plate by using the 4 socket screws.
i) Fit the original fan on the shaft extension (lock it with the circlip - larger motor sizes only).
k) Fit the rectifier (supplied) in the terminal box and connect it. Larger terminal boxes are supplied as part
of the brake kit for frame sizes 71 and 80.
l) Fit the extended fan cover supplied.

The Air Gap SL0 is to be measured between the Electromagnet (2) and the Stationary Disc and can be adjusted by
turning of the Adjustment Screws (3). Subsequent tightening of the Fixing Screws (1) is necessary.
The Air Gap SL0 dimensions can be found in the table above. When adjusting the Air Gap check Thickness of the
rotating Disc for TMIN.

*The switching time is given for switching on the DC side of the rectifier. If switching on the AC Side of the
rectifier the time is approximately 6 times longer !

The LENZE Brakes are single disc brakes with 2 friction surfaces. The brake torque is
achieved by springs. The disengagement is electromechanical. The Rotating Disc (3) is
shifted on the Toothed Hub (4) mounted on the Shaft (5) and pressed against the friction
surface of the steel Braking Plate (6) during braking. The movement is actioned by
Push Springs (2) through the Stationary Disc (1) and the Electromagnet (7). To disengage the brake a
DC voltage must be supplied to the Electromagnet (7). The electromagnetic force then pulls the Stationary Disc
(1) towards the Electromagnet (7) enabling the Rotating Disc (3) free rotation.
RECTIFIERS - Suitable rectifiers are delivered as a part of the brake kit. The input voltage is
230V10% 50/60Hz, which must be connected to the 2 terminals designated (~). The Electromagnet
leads must be connected to (+), (-). The polarity is not essential.
