Highlighted Safety Brakes

FPC Overspeed Safety Brake

The FPC parachute safety brake is a mechanical unit designed to prevent accidental falls in any motorized rack and pinion lifting mechanism.

Among those that stand out are construction elevators, work platforms, forklifts and wind towers.

This safety brake can also be mounted on lifting systems powered by chains, pulleys or drums. This FPC parachute safety brake, as the name suggests, completely stops the load at the moment of overspeed.

 

When does it act?

The parachute safety brake system FPC only acts when the descent speed is higher than a previously determined value.

The sensing elements act under the action of centrifugal force and lock the follower pinion against the structure.

The blocking is produced in a cushioned way, the platform being immobilized once braked.

 

Automatic Reset

By operating the mechanism in the opposite direction to that of the lock. By raising the platform a few centimeters, the FPC parachute safety brake returns to its original state.

Allowing its use immediately without the need for intervention by any operator.

 

Characteristics

Maximum load: up to 9000 Kg. (7000Nm)

Maximum speed: more than 120 m / min.

Centrifugal progressive lock, without trigger

Automatic reset: The procedure to reset the brake consists only of raising the elevator a few centimeters

The brake is operational again without the need for any type of manipulation

Easy accessibility to the microswitch

Different construction possibilities: one output shaft, two shafts for double-mast hoists and hollow shaft

One-way or two-way

In accordance with directives EN 12158, EN 12159 and EN 1495

According to the Elevator Directive 2014/33 / EU

According to the ATEX Directive 2014/34 / EU

 

The FPC parachute safety brake can be used for different types of machinery, such as:

Renewable energy machinery

Building and facade cleaning machinery

Machine tool

Construction sector machines

Fast doors

          FPC overspeed safety brake
          Description
          The FPC overspeed safety brake is a mechanical unit used to protect against accidental free-fall in rack and pinion lift mechanisms. It is very common to be used as the pinion safety brake of the rack and pinion construction hoist, industrial elevators, mast climbers and other types of lifting devices.
