Thomson's Deltran Genuine Wrap Spring Clutches and Wrap Spring Brakes provide hundreds of simple motion processes that can be controlled through three basic control functions: overrunning, start-stop, single revolution, and brake. Literally hundreds of simple motion processes can be controlled through the three basic functions of wrap spring clutches and brakes—Overrunning, Start-Stop, Single Revolution and Brake. Some examples of well suited wrap spring clutch and wrap spring brake applications are:
The basic wrap spring clutch and wrap spring brake consist of three elements: an input hub, an output hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the two hubs. The torque capacity of a wrap spring clutch or wrap spring brake is a direct function of the diameter of the hub and the tensile strength of the spring.
Thomson's Deltran offers GENUINE WRAP SPRING™ CLUTCH/BRAKE PACKAGES designed for convenience and long life.
Thomson's Deltran also offers GENUINE WRAP SPRING clutch and wrap spring brake ACCESSORIES such as dust cover enclosures or actuators and controls as a complete wrap spring clutch and wrap spring brake design solution.
CB Series combination clutches and brakes accurately start and stop loads driven by a continuously rotating power source. CB units operate from a single AC or DC pulse, stopping the load within ±½° noncumulative at speeds up to 1800 RPM. Each unit is preengineered and pre-assembled for easy installation.
Super CB Series combination of clutches and brakes accurately start and stop loads driven by a continuously rotating power source. CB units operate from a single AC or DC pulse, stopping the load within ±½° noncumulative at speeds up to 750 RPM - depending on size. Each unit is pre-engineered and pre-assembled for easy installation. Super CB clutches and brakes provide 3 to 5 times longer life! The five sizes of Super CB clutch/brake packages offer extraordinary performance and durability for those applications requiring long life under high load, high duty cycle conditions. Thomson will retrofit standard CB-5, CB-6, CB-7, CB-8, and CB-10 models.
The SAC Series features four models of pre-assembled, solenoid actuated, wrap spring clutch packages. SAC units operate from a single AC or DC pulse to accurately start loads at speeds up to 1800 RPM, depending on size. Adjustable stop control collars provide easy and accurate output stop position settings. A typical SAC Series clutch will bring the load up to speed within 3 milliseconds. They are easy to interface with PCs and industrial control systems. SAC Series clutches are accurate, repeatable, fast acting, simple, maintenance free, and low cost.
PSI Series clutches represent the most fundamental wrap spring clutch design. As a start-stop or single revolution clutch, it is actuated simply by external blocking or releasing of the stop collar. As a simple overrunning clutch it provides positive engagement of load to power source, but permits free overrunning when input power is slowed, stopped or reversed. All units can be supplied with hub input/shaft output or vice versa. Designed for applications where direct mechanical control is desired, the PSI Series clutch is a reliable, easily applied, low cost solution.
SA Series clutches come in size 250 and 500, in both clockwise and counter-clockwise configurations. SA units are available as hub or shaft input, and can operate with an AC or DC power source. Each unit is preengineered and pre-assembled for easy installation.
