Brakes and brake control

On request, we will gladly deliver our motors and gearmotors with an integrated mechanical brake, which is available as single brake or double brake. The great number of available brake sizes and braking torques will certainly let you find the ideal brake for your specific requirements.

Find the right brake for you using our modular brake system

Double disk brake: The new component in our safe brake systems

A popular solution for implementing safe brake systems in industrial environments or in event technology applications is the use of 2 parallel motors with individual brakes – a safe but not particularly compact or cost-effective solution.

With the introduction of the state-of-the-art BF../BT.. double disk brakes, SEW‑EURODRIVE has now made it possible for you to implement a safe brake system with 2 individual brakes on one single drive. Both of these double disk brake designs achieve the maximum performance level e (PL e) in industrial systems and event technology applications (in theaters, for instance).

The advantages of the double disk brake: Less installation space, less installation work and therefore lower costs. Supplementing a safe brake system, they provide completely new possibilities for man and machine in the area of functional safety.

    Allows for custom combinations of motors and brakes
  • Function and wear monitoring diagnostic unit (optional)

    With a contactless, continuous supply of information regarding the function and wear of each individual brake

Brakes for AC motors of the DR.. series


Technical data

The type and number of brake springs determines the level of the braking torque. Unless specified otherwise in the order, the brake is fitted with the maximum torquing brake MBmax as standard. Thanks to the additional brake spring combinations, the lower braking torque MBred can be chosen with the same brake size.

Functional safety

Functional safety: Brakes and brake rectifiers

SEW‑EURODRIVE drives can be fitted with optional safety-rated components such as brakes and/or encoders.

An integrated safety-rated brake is clearly labeled by the FS logo (e.g. FS02) on the motor nameplate. This allows for the implementation of safety functions and their performance level evaluation according to EN ISO 13849-1.

Safety functions with our brakes

  • SBA (safe brake actuation)
  • SBH (safe brake hold)

Our static and dynamic brake diagnostics for the MOVI-PLC® controller is also available as a supplement to the safe brake system.

Areas of application

  • Deceleration of motion, e.g. powertrains, rotary tables, etc.
  • Fall protection, e.g. hoists
  • Positioning drives

BF../BT.. double disk brakes for DR..-series motors


Technical data

The double disk brake can be used in industrial applications with or without "functional safety." The extremely quiet BT.. design with "functional safety," which meets all the specific requirements of event technology standards, is available for event technology applications (such as in theaters).
