Magnetek's Popular Mondel 200S Series Brakes Now Have Auto-Adjustment and Auto-Equalization Features
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. - August 11, 2006 - Magnetek Material Handling today announced they have added two important features to their widely popular Mondel 200S ST and ST/E Type, 3-phase AC Hy-Thrust Actuator Brakes. The new Auto-Adjustment (AA) and Auto-Equalization (AE) features automatically compensate for brake lining wear. According to VP, Magnetek Material Handling Perry Pabich, "these self-adjusting features eliminate the time required to manually adjust the linkages on the braking mechanism. Brake shoe to wheel clearance is automatically equalized and maintained, maximizing brake performance and extending brake lining life." A completely sealed, continuously rated, Hy-Thrust actuator electrically controls Magnetek's Mondel 200S ST and ST/E brakes. Designed with a minimum number of moving parts, the 200S brake series provides long service life with minimal maintenance and downtime.
