Anything which moves must also be able to brake. KTR is one of only a handful of manufacturers worldwide to be able to offer two different braking systems: the hydraulic KTR-STOP® and the electromechanical EMB-STOP. Our hydraulical and electromechanical brake systems are globally used in various industries. Customer preference and parameters of the application decide on the selection of the right brake.
Our Brake systems
KTR-STOP® M-D active fixed caliper brake
Service brake optionally with adjustment of air gap
KTR-STOP passive fixed caliper brakes
Depending on size, the KTR-STOP fixed caliper brakes are used as a service brake, holding brake or safety brake.
Our hub with brake disks KTR-STOP NBS can be combined with our brakes including mounting to an additional shaft output on the transmission.
Active floating caliper brakes
Our range of active floating caliper brakes includes hydraulic floating caliper brakes (KTR-STOP) and electromechanical
Passive floating caliper brakes
Our range of spring-operated floating caliper brakes includes hydraulic floating caliper brakes (KTR-STOP) and electromechanical floating caliper.
The brake works based on the fail-safe principle, i.e.: it engages in case of a power failure and is opened via a braking fan.
Yaw brakes KTR-STOP® YAW
Effective protection for the wind turbine against windsweeping and pulsating loads. Our yew brakes serve to align
Rotor lock / locking bolt
Rotor locks (locking bolts) block the rotors. This means that the rotors of wind turbines can be locked mechanically.
EMB-STOP SBT Stop Block Turn device
EMB-STOP SBT (Stop Block Turn brake) is made up of one or several disk brakes, locking elements and turn devices.
Electronic control system
Control system for program-controlled, accurate braking processes.
