Bistable Brakes - Low Energy Solution

Energy-optimized braking

As already described for the design of clutches, KEB bi-stable brakes, also called flip-flop brakes, also offer the capability of maintaining switching states - open and closed - without additional energy input.

Bi-stable brakes make sense in particular when stopping for a long time in one position is necessary, as in the use for doors and hatch systems, for example.
