ZF Tiratron – Hysteresis Brakes / Clutches and Safety Brakes / Clutches, Control Electronics (ERM)

Hysteresis products are based on the mutual attraction of magnetic poles in synchronous operation and on the continual reversal of polarity of a permanently magnetized material in continuous slip operation. As a result of the contact-free generation of torque, a high torque reproducibility is achieved and a significantly longer service life is assured, as there are no wear or leakage problems. In combination with control electronics, precise control of pulling forces and of torque levels is achieved.

ZF hysteresis technology finds application wherever products such as paper or wire undergo winding processes. ZF hysteresis technology can be used to simulate loads on test benches and in ergometers. In addition, hysteresis brakes are always the best solution for tension control.
