EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. … Power management company Eaton today announced that the Delta series motor is now available with a spring-applied pressure release parking brake. The Delta motor with brake is designed without cables, increasing reliability over competitive cabled brake options. The patent-pending design features Geroler technology, which provides dependable load holding and smooth reliable operation, making it ideal for propel machines under 50 horsepower, including turf mowers, stump grinders, aircraft tugs, trenchers and mini skid steer loaders.    

“This is the most compact brake on the market, giving machine designers more flexibility without sacrificing Eaton’s best-in-class efficiency,” said Mandee Liberty, product manager, Hydraulics, Eaton. “The Delta motor has the speed ratings, high side load capability, seal ratings and superior no-load pressure drop customers have come to expect from Eaton motors. In addition, integrating a hydraulic braking solution allows equipment manufacturers to build machines that are compatible with all-electric or hybrid platforms.”   

This rear-mounted integrated brake features brake pads that rotate at six times the speed of the output shaft, providing a six-to-one brake torque advantage. Additionally, the wet brake is environmentally protected, allowing for long part life with no service intervals, and includes an access port for manual brake release.
