Murrelektronik has introduced a range of active brake rectifiers designed to make it easier to connect DC brakes.

The contactor and rectifier modules are combined, saving time and effort, according to the company.

The DC brakes are controlled directly from the control cabinets and, thanks to the integrated semiconductor switch, they do not require any maintenance.

Murrelektronik added that its active brake rectifiers can be installed easily thanks to the pluggable spring clamp terminals.

Key features and specifications

  • Murrelektronik’s active brake rectifiers receive a signal from the programmable logic controller via a 24VDC control input
  • Semiconductor switch, which does not wear out, controls the rectified output voltage of the brake
  • Approved mains voltages from 230VAC to 480VAC make the brake rectifiers suitable for various applications
  • UL approval ensures the devices can be used worldwide
  • Pluggable components for the control input and output voltage enable quick and safe installation
