General information on the product
Description
Seawater-proof electromagnetic double-face spring-pressure operated brakes (SFB) and holding brakes (SFB-H) are safety brakes that are applied mechanically when the current is disconnected. This ensures that the brake still operates in the event of a power failure. Both types of brake are designed for dry-running operation, must only be operated in a safe condition and fitted, commissioned, operated and maintained only by specially trained installation personnel. Brakes with a rated voltage from 75V DC (low-voltage directive) carry the CE mark. SFB SFB series brakes are suitable for dynamic and static braking with minimum friction lining wear. SFB-H SFB-H series brakes are used only as holding brakes with emergency braking characteristics. The number of springs is increased compared to the normal brake, the maximum airgap reduced and wear with dynamic braking greater.

Use for the intended purpose
SFB and SFB-H series brakes are used for braking electric motors, e.g. on ships, drilling rigs, crane systems, in rolling mills and steel works, mining, transport and cable railways. Use for any other than the intended purpose is considered improper and not for the intended purpose. If there is any doubt that the intended application of the brake may not for the intended purpose, please consult PINTSCH BAMAG.

Safety information
The safety information provided here is of a general nature. Special safety information is provided at the beginning of a chapter or specific point in the text. Observing all safety information will help prevent accidents and damage to the brake. Safety rules and regulations must also be observed under the pressure of time. Accidents cannot be reversed.

∆ Electromagnetic fields
The brake is not screened. In the immediate vicinity of the brake, electromagnetic fields can be produced, the strength of which depends on the site of the brake. The user must ensure compliance with the requirements of DIN VDE 0848, part 4, “Safety relating to electromagnetic fields in the range 0 Hz-30 kHz”.

∆ Pacemakers or implants
Persons with pacemakers or implants must avoid the area of electromagnetic brakes in any event. The strong electromagnetic fields pose a danger to life!

∆ Protective barriers
Mark out a working area of sufficient size around the brake. Cordon off points allowing public access with protective barriers around the working area of the brake.

∆ Safety distance
A safety distance should be maintained to all hazardous zones to ensure safety of personnel and prevention of damage to the brake.

∆ Avoid negligent behaviour Refrain from any actions that could affect the safety of the brake. ∆ Do not dismantle the brake completely
The brake may only be dismantled to the extent specified in the operating instructions. Any dismantling of the assemblies over and beyond the extent specified is forbidden.

∆ Do not place or leave anything lying around in this area
Because of the electromagnetic fields, no objects must be placed or left lying around in the area of the brake. This applies in particular to metal objects.

Drive technology

Safety information ∆ Do not store any objects in this area
Do not store any flammable objects in the immediate vicinity of the brake.

∆ Work with care
Before carrying out any work on the brake, measures must be taken against any dangers to the life and health of persons and damage to the brake: • Only closed shoes in a perfect condition must be worn. Open sandals, damaged or unsuitable shoes must not be worn. • Closed, tight-fitting working clothes must be worn. Wide work jackets and wide sleeves can be dangerous. • Long hair must be tied back. Work should only be carried out on the brake when: • All dangerous movements have stopped • Accidental and unexpected operation of the brake is made impossible by suitable measures • If the brake is loaded, other safety devices provide a braking and holding function.

∆ Danger of crushing
When working on the brake, heavy tools are used. Particular attention should therefore be paid to possible crushing points when: • Using tools • Fitting and removing the brake, accessories or spare parts • Unbolting the brake from the pallet

∆ Unusual changes
In the event of unusual changes to the brake, the brake power supply must immediately be disconnected. Any unusual changes, e.g. development of smell at the brake, must immediately be reported to the person concerned or the customer service department notified in order to prevent the brake suffering further damage.

∆ Overvoltage protection For brakes with coil outputs from 100 W and higher, overvoltage protection must be provided to prevent damage to the coil on disconnection of the brake power supply.

Installation
The brake can be fitted horizontally or vertically. Prior to fitting the brake, the following safety information must be observed:

∆ Shutdown equipment prior to fitting brake Before fitting the brake, it must be ensured that the equipment to which the brake is to be fitted
• is shutdown and • secured to prevent accidental activation.

∆ Do not use any grease
The brake is designed for dry-running operation. For this reason, no greases or oils must be used during installation of the brake. Greases and oils reduce the braking action. The hub in particular must not be oiled or greased.

∆ Danger of crushing
When carrying out work on the brake, heavy tools are used. Particular attention should therefore be paid to possible crushing points when: • Using tools • Fitting and removing the brake, accessories or spare parts • Unbolting the brake from the pallet

∆ Use lifting equipment
The brake can weigh between 19 and 750 kg depending on type. For brake installation purposes, lifting gear or another crane can be used.

∆ Do not use a crane that is being fitted with brakes Under no circumstances should the crane to which brakes are being fitted be used for lifting purposes. ∆ Protection of inner brake
Dirt, oil and spray water reduce the braking capacity. Friction linings, brake flange and armature plate must be protected when the brake is open.

-

After electrical connection, bolt the brake adapter flange to the motor flange.

∆ Observe bolt tightening torque.
The prescribed tightening torque must be observed when tightening bolts (see “Technical Data)”.
-

Simultaneously unscrew both manual release bolts evenly counter-clockwise until the bolt heads just make contact with the brake flange.

∆ Do not unscrew manual release bolts with force If the manual release bolts are unscrewed with force over and beyond the resistance, the brake can be damaged. ∆ Ensuring correct braking action
A check should be made to ensure that the manual release bolts are unscrewed properly. If the manual release bolts are tightened, the brake will not operate or be restricted.

∆ Remove foreign bodies on O-ring and contact surfaces.
When fitting the housing, the housing O-ring and contact surfaces must be from foreign bodies, otherwise the housing will not provide a proper seal.

Drive technology

-

Clean O-ring and contact surface. Fit the housing noting the installation position, the mark on the housing must correspond with the mark on the adapter flange.

Marks (notches) Brake adapter flange Housing

Electrical connection
During installation, electrical connection of the brake must be established.

∆ Only qualified electrician
Only a qualified electrician may connect the brake to the DC supply and check the current flow, taking into all safety measures. Incorrect connection may have fatal consequences!

∆ Earthing
The brake must be earthed in compliance with the applicable regulations.

∆ Disconnect system from the supply The supply must be disconnected before carrying out any work on the electrical system. ∆ Provide overvoltage protection
Brakes with a coil output of 100 W and higher must be provided with overvoltage protection to prevent damage to the coil on disconnection of the brake power supply.

∆ Prevent brake overheating To prevent the brake overheating, it must be ensured that the motor to be braked does not continue to run in the event of an undesired power failure. ∆ Do not switch on
Disconnect the power supply to the motor before connecting the brake.

-

Provide a “Do not switch on” sign at the switching point. Establish electrical connection. Remove the sign.

12

Drive technology

Commissioning
Prior to commissioning the brake, the following safety information must be observed:

∆ Overloading the brake The operator is obliged to adjust the motor for the brake in such a way that the brake cannot be overloaded. Overloading the brake would cause heavy brake lining wear.
Note: As a result of chemical degreasing at the factory, the armature plate and brake flange may have a bluish discoloration; this is not an indication of thermal overload.

∆ Risk of burns!
During operation, the brake can reach temperatures up to 80°C. Any contact with the hot brake housing must therefore be avoided.

∆ Maintain maximum speed range
In order to prevent damage to the brake, the brake must be operated also during commissioning only within the permissible speed range. Note: Loading case and technical data sheets must be observed.

Function check
A function check must be carried out prior to each initial use. Observe the safety information before carrying out the function check:

∆ Do not place or leaving anything lying around in this area
Remove all metal or flammable objects from the working area of the brake.

∆ Do not reach into rotating brake
If the function check is carried out with the housing removed, reaching into rotating brake must be avoided in any event.

∆ Seal replacement
All seals removed for the function check must be replaced with new seals.

-

The procedure for cleaning and fitting the housing is as described in the chapter “Installation” under the section “Fitting the brake”.

Checking the airgap
To ensure correct operation of the brake, the airgap between the coil body group and armature plate must have the prescribed size. The minimum or maximum airgap is shown on the brake rating plate. The brake is set with the minimum airgap at the factory. Check the airgap through the open tapped holes at three points: Bolt with sealing ring

-

Unscrew bolts with sealing rings from the housing Insert feeler gauge through the open tapped holes at all three points Measure the airgap between the armature plate and coil body group. Re-insert bolts with sealing rings and tighten. Old sealing rings cannot prevent the ingress of water.

14

Drive technology

Mode of operation of the brake
Connection of the brake power supply
On connection of the brake power supply, an electromagnetic field builds up. This causes the armature plate to be drawn towards the coil body group and the brake is released. The friction lining group of the brake can now rotate freely between the armature plate and brake flange.

Disconnection of the brake power supply
On disconnection of the brake power supply, the electromagnetic field collapses and the brake is applied. The pressure of the springs forces the armature plate against the friction lining group. The friction lining group simultaneously presses against the brake flange. The mechanical friction is transferred to the motor shaft via the friction lining plate and driving hub. The motor is braked.

Running-in friction linings
With the commissioning of the brake or after renewal of the friction lining group, the friction linings must be run-in. Only when this has been done is the specified braking torque fully transmitted. Several controlled braking operations should be carried out, bearing in mind that the full braking power is not initially available. Braking under full load must be avoided.

Drive technology

15

Operation
The following safety information must be observed for operation of the brake:

∆ Usual changes
In the event of any unusual changes to the brake, the brake power supply must immediately be disconnected. Any unusual changes , e.g. the development of smell at the brake, should immediately be reported to the person concerned or the customer service department notified in order to prevent the brake suffering further damage.

∆ Permissible braking energy
The permissible braking energy can be determined from the thermal load diagram. Braking speed n = 1500 rpm

Energy per braking operation Q [kJ/operation]

Braking operation per hour z [1/h]

With a known switching energy per braking operation and number of braking operations per hour, the brake size can be determined. Example: Q = 100 kJ/switching energy and z = 35 braking operations/hour = brake SFB 100.

16

Drive technology

Manual release
Releasing the brake manually means briefly releasing the brake by manual actions and only in an emergency, e.g. in order to lower suspended loads carefully. The following safety information must be observed before releasing the brake manually:

∆ Manual release only for emergencies
Under no circumstances must the manual release be used for the purpose of maintaining temporary operation. It is intended for emergency use only. It must be ensured when releasing the brake manually that the power supply to the brake remains disconnected and cannot be accidentally reconnected.

∆ Note position of load
It is important to note the position of the load when releasing the brake manually and that the surrounding area is cleared before the load is lowered.

∆ High brake temperature
Depending on the operating mode, the brake can reach high temperatures. It may therefore be necessary to wear protective gloves when releasing the brake manually. Contact with a hot brake when releasing the brake manually must be avoided as burns can result.

The housing can remain fitted when releasing the brake manually.
