'standard' types of Drivloc are available. (Others can be supplied
to special Order).
BRAKES FOR EMERGENCY STOPPING,
manual S.M. range.
manual S.M. range is the World's most popular safety type machine braking system.
With this System, the equipped Machine Starts and Stops normally when it is being
operated normally. However, in the event of a potential accident or problem occurring
on the Machine, the trip switch is activated by the Machine Operator.
then instantly cuts the A.C. supply to the motor and simultaneously injects an
accurate amount of D.C. current to the motor to bring it rapidly to rest.
the Machine has come to rest, the Duration timer disconnects the D.C. supply to
the Motor, the Motor then remains in a passive state until it is deliberately
Drivloc unit must then be Manually reset by Pressing a button on
the front of the enclosure, before the machine can be restarted. Thus preventing
inadvertent restarting of the machine should an accident have occurred.
BRAKES FOR IMPROVED PRODUCTION
Automatic P.M. range.
Automatic P.M. range is suitable for many production applications as well as certain
safety applications. Once installed, the Drivloc forms an integral
part of the machines control system.
the machine stop button is pressed, the brake unit will be activated and bring

Whenever the machine start button is pressed, the motor
will immediately restart.
NO MANUAL RESET IS REQUIRED.
P.M. Range is particularly suitable for machines with inherently long Run Down
times which often cause Production hold ups or Safety Problems.
